WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff wins work on HS2-Crossrail interchange

WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff has secured a deal to work on the connection between High Speed 2, Crossrail, Great Western Mainline and Heathrow Express services in west London.

The engineering consultancy giant will undertake a study into realigning existing tracks at Old Oak Common to create room for a new station that will allow interchange between the planned and existing lines.

Old Oak Common station, positioned between Heathrow and central London, is planned to handle more than 250,000 passengers a day when completed. Its construction will require careful planning to avoid disruption to busy rail links while preparing for Crossrail and HS2.

WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff head of rail Darren Reed said: “This project has national significance as it involves HS2, Crossrail, the main Western rail artery and the express service to the UK’s largest airport.

“The complexity of this project requires excellence in designing, planning and engineering, and we are looking forward to delivering the benefits of our combined railway, station, and civil engineering expertise.”
