Skanska and partners have won a contract to design and construct the Waterloo and South West Upgrade on the South West Trains network.
Network Rail awarded the £453M contract to Skanska, in alliance with Aecom, Colas Rail and Mott MacDonald. Skanska’s part of the scheme is worth in excess of £165M.
The project includes the design and construction of the Waterloo International Terminal and platform modifications at Waterloo station, as well as improvements to South Western Rail’s outlying stations and rail systems. The work will be carried out on the Wessex Route, which includes services from Bournemouth and Portsmouth to Waterloo.
Work started this month and the project is expected to be completed in April 2019.
