Balfour Beatty VINCI SYSTRA Take Over HS2 Old Oak Common Site

BBVS was given the nod for the Old Oak Common contract back in September 2019. Since then, the joint venture has worked with HS2 Ltd to create the programme of works needed to build the new station. It is estimated that 250,000 passengers will use the new station on a daily basis once it opens, making it one of the busiest in the country. It will feature eight conventional train platforms (underground and overground) and six high-speed train platforms. The conventional platforms will be served by the Elizabeth Line, Heathrow Express and connections to Wales and the West of England, providing connectivity to and from the HS2 line.

BBVS will start by delivering piling works for the station’s foundations.

When finished, the station will have a striking roof, which has been designed to provide natural ventilation and reduce the need for long-term energy consumption.
