VLA Alliance: Consortium of VolkerRail, Laing O’Rourke and Atkins Realis

The VLA Alliance is a collaborative venture between VolkerRail, Laing O’Rourke and AtkinsRéalis, who are continuing to work together in order to bid for the Midland Rail Hub project. The three parent companies have over a decade long relationship, originally working together on the Stafford Area Improvement Programme (SAIP) the first ‘pure construction alliance’ in the UK rail industry, and more recently as the East West Rail Alliance. We are further developing and growing our Alliance by engaging with strategic partners including Tony Gee & Partners and Copper Consulting.

  • VolkerRail, Laing O’Rourke and AtkinsRéalis, the three companies that form the VLA Alliance, are extremely proud to be jointly supporting Women in Rail and The Big Rail Diversity Challenge for the 2024 event.

    Our businesses are passionate about fairness, inclusion and respect throughout everything that we do. We are committed to creating environments where every individual feels that they can be their true authentic self through the creation of diverse and inclusive workforces. We are looking forward to taking part in the challenge to promote the positive messages that the event creates, and the positive effect Women in Rail has had within the rail sector since its creation.
