Parsons Brinckerhoff sweeps £8M worth of High Speed 2 systems contracts

Scheme promoter HS2 Ltd has awarded two design contracts to Parsons Brinckerhoff worth £8M in total under Lot 2 of its Professional Services Framework covering Railway Systems Design Services.

The first contract, valued at £4.3M, covers the design of the high speed rail systems for Phase 1 of the project, from London to West Midlands.

The second contract, valued at £3.7M, covers the design of modifications to the existing Network Rail systems at key interface points such as Euston, Old Oak Common and the connection to the West Coast mainline, to enable the construction of High Speed 2 and ensure minimal disruption to existing rail services.

Parsons Brinckerhoff will prepare the preliminary designs for high speed and conventional railway systems, to support the hybrid bill submission and will work closely with HS2 Ltd’s systems engineers, civil and structural engineers and environmental specialists as well as key industry stakeholders such as Network Rail.

The designs will be used to inform the hybrid bill documents that are due to be submitted to Parliament by the end of 2013.
