The High Speed 2 (HS2) is a state-of-the-art high-speed rail network that will connect London and the Midlands at Birmingham, and eventually extend to Manchester or Leeds from Birmingham.
The London Euston Station is the proposed Central London Terminus, and HS2 has instructed Network Rail to make amendments to their infrastructure in and around London Euston Station to allow for the future HS2 station works.
To carry out the enabling works at London Euston Station, Network Rail has appointed Skanska, as part of the Infrastructure Projects (IP) Central Framework. Skanska has been tasked with carrying out all enabling works associated with all Mechanical, Electrical, Public Health and Communications (MEPFC) assets within the ‘Cut Line’ area, which is part of the station that will be demolished to facilitate the construction of the HS2 London Terminal. Skanska will also work on the wider station area to facilitate the demolition and structural strengthening works required to enable Network Rail to release land to HS2 for the new station at Euston.
