Balfour Beatty completes Dundee Railway Station and Hotel

Balfour Beatty, the international infrastructure group, has successfully completed works to the 28.5 million Dundee railway station, on behalf of Dundee City Council.

Balfour Beatty utilised its extensive experience in the construction of complex projects on a live, operational railway, to deliver a new station and concourse, hotel development and associated retail facilities with minimal disruption to train services.

As part of the works, Balfour Beatty erected a 2600 tonne steel frame with another 500 tonnes of metal bridge beams, the longest of which was 38.5 meters. Balfour Beatty's workforce worked through the night to support the build and installation, ensuring minimal disruption to the rail interface and travelling public.

The new railway station forms a part of Dundee City Council's regeneration programme, aiming to create a strong and sustainable city economy that will raise the quality of life and improve the local environment.
