Wealth of experience

At Kier we have over 70 years of experience delivering rail projects including the installation of power systems and signalling design and build. 

The Kier Rail team carry out multidisciplinary rail projects across the UK. Working with us, you will benefit from a range of in-house capabilities, including design, Early Contractor Involvement, Budget Costing, Programme Management and Project delivery.

Bridges and Viaducts 

Our specialist in-house engineering capabilities enable us to develop and implement detailed structural, mechanical and electrical solutions for a diverse range of structures including major pedestrian, cycle, road and rail bridges across the UK.

We have refurbished major bridges, including the award winning Chelsea Rail Bridge and Kingston River Bridge, along with some of the UK’s major swing bridges. Kier have a particular expertise in maintaining existing structures through assessment, repair and strengthening.

Signalling

With specialist teams for signalling and power Kier has the expertise to offer clients the certainty of cost and certainty of delivery, however big or small a project. Clients also want to see us moving things forward in terms of innovation, safety, digitisation and making as much use of BIM as possible. From renewing signalling to extending power systems to allow stations to cater for longer trains we’re helping move rail forward.

Since 1997, our team of signalling specialists has developed a strong record of carrying out complex and technically challenging projects. We produce designs for all signalling disciplines and within Network Rail are recognised as experts in Relay Route Interlockings, Solid State Interlockings including CBI data design; and all types of mechanical interlockings (locking design and independent checking).

With Institution of Railway Signal Engineers (IRSE) licensed design and installation resources, our strength lies in design and installation of new technology in an older existing railway environment and our signalling engineering team is acknowledged as market leaders in this area. Projects we are currently involved with range from feasibility studies to full design and build programmes, valued from £15,000 to £15 million.

Power

For many decades we have specialised in the installation and enhancement of power systems across the rail network. A leading design and construct provider of Electrification & Plant (E&P), High Voltage (HV) and associated power services for Network Rail, our high-performing CP5 Frameworks build upon many decades specialising in the installation and enhancement of power systems across the rail network.
