Capita Symonds and Ineco team up for HS2 bid

UK consultant Capita Symonds and Spanish consultant Ineco have formed a joint venture to bid for contracts on the government’s proposed High Speed 2 (HS2) project.

The move follows the recent launch by transport secretary Philip Hammond of the procurement process for a development partner and for external contractors to assist in the engineering and environmental work for HS2. The £32bn scheme comprises a high speed rail line between London, the Midlands and the north of England.

Between them, the two firms have experience on high speed rail work in Spain, Asia and South America and the UK’s mega-rail project Crossrail.

Ineco has been responsible for the development of 6,000km of high speed line in Spain including the Madrid-Seville and the Madrid-Barcelona lines. The company is also developing high speed rail lines across other parts Europe as well as in Asia and South America. Capita Symonds designed the Royal Oak and Woolwich and Plumstead portals on the Crossrail scheme - the biggest construction project in Europe. The company has also worked on a number of other major transport infrastructure projects including the Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) system in Delhi and the Øresund Tunnel between Denmark and Sweden
