East West Railway Company seeks Development Phase Technical Partner: Prior Information Notice published

East West Railway Company has published a Prior Information Notice (PIN) procuring technical and management resources to support the scheme development phase of the programme to build a new railway between Oxford and Cambridge.

This will include preliminary engineering and systems design, environmental assessment and management of the statutory processes – including stakeholder consultation.

East West Railway Company is intending to engage with the market and assess the appetite for providing services to East West Railway Company prior to launching a procurement programme in the autumn this year.

Simon Blanchflower CBE, Chief Executive, East West Railway Company said: “We want to work with a partner who shares our passion for innovation and will work with us to deliver the right railway for the communities living and working between Oxford, Milton Keynes, Bedford and Cambridge.

“This is an exciting time to be part of the East West Rail project as we continue with preparation and design of key sections of the railway. The right partner will help us to continue our work in a way which protects and enhances the local environment and heritage, and minimises disruption to local communities.”
