The £1bn overhaul of London Bridge station has scooped two awards at the British Construction Industry Awards 2018.

Winning the gong for Transport Project of the Year, the project was also claimed the ICE 200 award. 

The seven-year project led by Costain officially opened in May this year, with new entrances on Tooley Street and St Thomas installed as well at better links to bus and tube connections. Additional platforms and new tracks were also laid as part of the project commissioned by Network Rail.

Tideway claimed the Health, Safety & Wellbeing Initiative of the Year for its EPIC project. As part of their project induction, every member of the workforce, from tunnel operatives to delivery drivers and office staff, goes through an immersive, multimedia health and safety training day.
