The entry period for the Partnership Awards 2013 has now closed. All entries will now be judged by a team of representatives from Network Rail and the rail industry. The shortlist will be announced on Monday 10 June.
Since April 2009 we have worked with 6,223 suppliers, more than 40 per cent of which are small and medium sized enterprises. The Network Rail Partnership Awards are our way of thanking all of them, and all of our customers, for their help and support in delivering a better railway for a better Britain. All those shortlisted will be invited to a complimentary awards dinner that will take place at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, London, on Wednesday 24 July 2013. The winners will be announced on the night.
