The Gallery | Edinburgh's award winning rail station

The £25M refurbishment and extension of Edinburgh’s Haymarket Station has won this year’s Saltire Civil Engineering Awards.

Given by the Saltire Society and the Institution of Civil Engineers Scotland, the award recognised work which included two 110 tonne modules being lifted into place overnight, enabling the completion date to be cut by a year. The major contractor was Morgan Sindall.

Chair of the assessors’ panel Gordon Pomphrey said: “The winning project demonstrated excellent collaborative working on a live and complex site. That it was delivered safely without disruption to rail services or passengers is a credit to the team involved.”

Network Rail regional director Rob McIntosh said of the winning project: “12,000 passengers and 800 trains pass through Haymarket every day and the team did everything in its power to ensure that this complex project was delivered with minimal disruption and fuss. We are absolutely delighted for the project team involved in the redevelopment of Haymarket station and I applaud them for their collaborative approach throughout. Winning this award is great recognition for all of the hard work that went into this project and particularly gratifying given the high quality of all projects put forward for this year’s awards.”
