MECX is a well-established railway contractor and service provider. We not only focus on timely and cost-effective supply but also of the need to ensure safety for all stakeholders in what is a highly safety-critical environment.

We work with Network Rail, underground, light rail and tramway asset owners and operators in Great Britain and Ireland, along with third-party stakeholders, to maintain, renew and enhance the railway for the benefit of an ever-increasing number of passengers.

In addition to our general and lineside civil engineering offering, the company also operates within the electrification, signalling and track portfolios, helping to maintain and construct network-critical assets. We also offer Vegetation Management Services across the entire rail infrastructure which comply with all Network Rail Standards.

Calling on our background in general civil engineering, we deliver construction works to maintain, repair, renew and improve the strategic and trunk road networks across Great Britain. We also offer support to local authorities with road maintenance services.

Regarding specialist services, we also undertake the following activities:

  • Drainage
  • Temporary Traffic Management
  • Road Restraint Systems
  • Road Markings
  • Landscape and Ecology
  • Vegetation Management


Like other transport assets, airports and airfields are highly safety-critical environments, and the business is aware of the demands that owners and contractors will have of us when working with clients in an airside setting.

We can call on our experience of delivering works at some of the UK’s largest airports, to offer general civil engineering and other specialist work at airports and airfields across the UK.


Ports and harbours represent yet another unique work environment, and MECX offers clients the management, staff and resources to undertake various projects, such as the maintenance, repair and renewal of quays, jetties and slipways.

In addition to civil engineering and specialist engineering works, the company also provides a range of facilities management (FM) services, both ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ to asset owners in transport infrastructure. Please click here to read more about our broader FM activities.
