Arup to do outline design for Bristol MetroWest project

Network Rail has appointed Arup to do the outline design for Phase 1 of Bristol’s MetroWest project.

The work will include civils, track, drainage, structures, telecoms, signalling power and geotechnical engineering.

The work is part of a £100M investment in rail services in the area. The project will include a new station at Portishead and restoration of the link from there to Bristol, the reopening of Pill station and previously disused railway, and enhancement works at Bathampton and Avonmouth.

Arup project director Phil Harrison said: “This project will greatly enhance the area’s transport links and play a key role in the continued economic growth of the area. It is a real privilege to be involved at a key stage of the project and to be undertaking the multi-disciplinary design for Network Rail.”

The work will be completed by May 2019.
