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.
