On Track for the future

MPB have been successfully delivering rail projects across the UK for more than 20 years. When we commenced works on the Network Rail Managed Infrastructure our Link Up qualifications were commensurate with NWR requirements.   

In 2005 we attained pur Contractors Assurance Case (CAC) allowing us to work directly for Network Rail. This was converted in 2008 to a Principal Contractors Licence (PCL). Being a PCL holder requires us to be a Qualified Supplier under the Link Up scheme. MPB holds in excess of 100 specialist product groups allowing us to carry out a wide range of services from carpark construction to bridge demolition.

Our works undertaken on the Rail are innovative, flexible and efficient.  We work proudly to deliver best value to all involved.

We are customer focused and have built up a reputation producing high quality services, safely and efficiently

Our rail personnel have the technical and relationship skills to ensure the cost-effective and timely delivery of every project. Our team understands the latest rail industry technologies and is proven in the delivery of projects as well as critical works on live rail infrastructure.

Our Rail team commences every new project with an initial goal of gaining a deep understanding of each customer’s true drivers, risks and aims. Only through such an understanding is it considered possible to deliver an exceptional project that meets customer expectations, and anticipates future demands and community needs. MPB Rail works closely with customers through all phases of project development and delivery – from planning and designs through to construction and on-going maintenance. Each solution is tailored and inclusive of customer input to ensure effective risk management and achieve value-for-money expectations.
