Transport for London and CH2M’s London Overground capacity improvement programme won the top prize at ICE London’s 2015 Awards

The improvement programme won the Greatest Contribution to London Award. It increased capacity in the Overground system through the introduction of longer trains, construction of new stabling facilities at Wembley and extending the existing New Cross Gate and Willesden maintenance depots.

The scheme also involved the extension of platforms at most stations on the Richmond to Stratford and Highbury & Islington to Clapham Junction routes.

Six other projects received awards, including the Herne Hill flood alleviation scheme, which won the award for community contribution, the Bond Street Station upgrade which received London’s best infrastructure project award and Sky’s Believe in Better Building which was awarded best building project.
