An MP has written to Chris Grayling to ask for reassurances over the delivery of the Tram-Train project as Carillion was the main contractor on the construction project. The heavily delayed project is expected to open this summer.
These concerns have been managed by talks between key stakeholders keeping the work managed by Carillion moving forward.
Network Rail have issued a press release today (19 January 2018) providing reassurance on pay until mid April.
Working behind the scenes, the Official Receiver’s special managers – PwC – and Network Rail have come to an agreement which ensures that PwC can pay employees’ wages for work done on and supporting Network Rail’s projects until after Easter and have also made arrangements to ensure rail employees are paid as normal in January for work done in January.
