Pre market Engagement and Request for Information, deadline 09/10/2020, for Western Rail Link to Heathrow. After last year’s supplier engagement workshop, the RFI will focus on how the market views the proposed procurement strategy, the capacity and capability in the market and potential bidding models to deliver the work packages. Your feedback will help inform Network Rail how best to deliver potential procurement events in the future.  

The proposed main contract structure of the programme will be based on three packages of work where the design and construction of each package can be completed largely in isolation of the other packages. 

The first package will consist of works to construct the Rail Intersection Bridge (RIB) underneath the GWML and will include all civil engineering, track, OLE and associated works to create both the bridge and the new rail junction with the GWML. 

The second package will consist of the works to construct two tunnels into T5 and will include the procurement and operation of the tunnel boring machines. 

The third package will consist of the fit-out of the tunnel section, including track, OLE, ventilation, etc.
