Balfour Beatty Vinci JV names new HS2 boss

Hs2 2by3

The Balfour Beatty Vinci joint venture has named Mark Cutler as the new managing director of its High Speed 2 (HS2) bid vehicle.

The JV is currently shortlisted for four of the seven HS2 main civils works packages that have a value of £4bn, with the overall civils work on offer worth £11.8bn. Cutler replaces Peter Anderson.

“I believe our long-standing joint venture, an infrastructure powerhouse proven in innovative and collaborative delivery, with over 30 years of international major rail project experience, is a compelling proposition for the delivery of HS2,” said Cutler.

Update: Anderson will join J Murphy & Sons to run its southern operations.
