Mott MacDonald wins Polish railway contract

Mott MacDonald has been appointed by PKP PLK SA, Poland’s national railway line company, to provide site supervision on a scheme worth more than €160 million to improve Poland’s rail infrastructure.

The scheme has been introduced to rehabilitate and modernise the country’s rail infrastructure and to remove bottlenecks on several parts of the Polish railway network located on links between and along Pan-European corridors. The project is co-financed through the EU Cohesion Fund.

Mott MacDonald’s team, with support from local subcontractors Kolprojekt and Movares, are responsible for site supervision and inspections of engineering work within the project according to FIDIC* contract requirements. This will involve supervision of 14 engineering work contracts, encompassing 122 building units (some in need of repair, others under construction) as well as track formation, repair and reinforcement of the engineering structure, renewal of overhead catenaris as well as installation of automatic safety equipment at level crossings.

Konrad Grossey, Mott MacDonald’s project director said, “We are delighted to be appointed by PKP PLK SA on this very important project for the people and economy of Poland. Mott MacDonald has expertise in delivering transportation programmes all around the world and we look forward to demonstrating our expertise in helping to ensure that Poland’s rail infrastructure will continue to provide both commercial and social benefit for years to come “

The project is due for completion in 2009.
