Mott MacDonald awarded HS2 design contract

Mott MacDonald has been appointed by HS2 Ltd to provide civil and structural design services for the new high speed rail network in the United Kingdom. URS, SENER, London Bridge Associates and Weston Williamson Architects will support Mott MacDonald as sub consultants.

Awarded one of four design contracts under Lot 1 of HS2 Ltd’s Professional Services Framework, the consultancy will prepare preliminary designs for the London Metropolitan Area section of the high speed rail link between London and Birmingham.

Working closely with HS2 Ltd, rail systems designers, environmentalists and land referencing companies, Mott MacDonald will design approximately 25km of new high speed rail line from the redeveloped Euston Station through north west London. The consultancy will also work on the link to HS1 and a new 14 platform interchange station at Old Oak Common.

Commenting on the appointment, Tony Walker, Mott MacDonald's project director, said: "We are delighted to be awarded this important package and to bring our skills in rail and tunnelling in and under London. Our team was responsible for much of the Crossrail hybrid bill engineering activity which, coupled with our Jubilee Line, East London Line and Thameslink experience, will allow us to apply our expertise to this complex section of the HS2 route."

Mott MacDonald, as part of a consortium, has also been appointed to two of the four EIA contracts under Lot 3 Environmental Services of HS2 Ltd’s Professional Services Framework. This will cover the London metropolitan area and rural south section of the route covering Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire.
