Mace and Dragados joint venture preferred bidder for HS2 station at Euston
Mace and Dragados welcome the news that HS2 has today named their joint venture as the preferred bidder for a contract to deliver the project’s London terminus at Euston.
The station Construction Partners will be responsible for working with HS2 Ltd and the station designers, to coordinate the delivery of the station, including platforms, concourse and links to the London Underground and other rail services.
At Euston, HS2 will more than double capacity, to deal with increasing passenger demand while freeing up space on the west coast mainline for more freight and local and long distance commuter services to places like Watford and Milton Keynes.
Mace and Dragados have a strong track record of delivering complex and demanding infrastructure projects in London and across the globe, including Battersea Power Station (phase 2), Birmingham New Street Station, Mumbai International Airport Terminal Two and work on delivering the Spanish high speed rail network.
In February 2018, HS2, on behalf of the Department for Transport and Network Rail, appointed Lendlease to develop a masterplan for the wider Euston site, which could support up to 14,000 new jobs and almost 4,000 new homes, as well as shops, cafes and public spaces.
HS2 services will eventually connect over 25 destinations and 30 million people across the UK. Trains will serve existing city centre stations in places like Glasgow and Liverpool, as well as brand new purpose built stations in Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, and the East Midlands.
Jason Millett, Mace's Chief Operating Officer said:
“We are delighted by today’s news. HS2 will transform Euston, delivering much-needed extra capacity and better journeys for the 44 million people that use the station every year. Mace's experience across the whole property life-cycle and other major infrastructure projects alongside Dragados's world-class high speed rail expertise will fully be brought to bear on this complex project of national importance.
“Working closely with the HS2 team, we look forward to working with local people and wider stakeholders to ensure that this project is delivered as effectively, efficiently and safely as possible.”
