Dunbartonshire firm lands deal to carry out surfacing work across Scotland’s rail network

A Dunbartonshire-based resurfacing and civils firm has secured a major framework contract with Network Rail to provide surfacing services across its Scotland route for the next five years.

The Tier 1 contract was secured by Complete Paving Requirements (Scotland) Limited, known as CPR, who will provide both planned and reactive works for platforms, pathways, road access and car parks.

The firm revealed it will work throughout the 320-station Scotland route, including the Highlands, extending its experience within the rail sector which dates back to 2002.

MD William Black said, “CPR have delivered surfacing for Network Rail and several other rail contractors for many years, winning our first rail tender in 2002. The Tier 1 contractor award is testament to the company’s operations’ and safety processes, which have been developed over many years. Our highly skilled workforce is very experienced in working in the Scottish climate and terrain and therefore we are able to secure and reliably deliver a prestigious framework such as this.”

The company was previously awarded a framework by Network Rail to provide surfacing for reactive works on the Scotland route in 2016.
