Costain/Hochtief JV wins £80M Reading station contract

Contractor Costain in joint venture with Hochtief has been awarded an £80M contract to redevelop Reading station.

The contract is one of the largest that will be awarded as part of Network Rail’s £850M project to transform Reading’s railway system. It will see five new platforms constructed at Reading, as well as a new footbridge linking platforms to new entrance buildings on the north and south side of the station. The aim is to relieve congestion on the Great Western Main Line and will mean that passengers no longer have to wait outside the station for a platform to become available.
