ACS appointed for "biggest station-building programme" in London since the Victorians

ACS Group, through its subsidiary Dragados and in Joint Venture with Mace has been notify of the award decision of the HS2 Euston Station contract in central London (United Kingdom) by the High Speed Two Limited (HS2 Ltd.). The 1.5bn management contract consists in the design, construction, commissioning and handover of the eleven new platforms, including Over Site Development (OSD) enabling works; and the provision of an enlarged ticket hall and enhancement of the existing Euston London Underground (LU) station and connection to Euston Square London Underground (LU) station.

Dragados is the only Spanish construction company awarded with the large packages of civil works and stations.

HS2 phase 1 is the planned high-speed railway in the United Kingdom connecting directly to London with Birmingham, the East Midlands, Leeds and Manchester and it will link more than 25 station. This is the most recent milestone in the effort to bring the new high-speed terminal station to London and as the government said the "biggest station-building programme since Victorian era".

The existing Euston station is the sixth busiest railway station in Britain and was designed in 1963 to manage 20 million people a year, but in 2018 has been handling over 87 million people a year between London Underground and rail service.

The construction of the new high-speed Euston Station is expected to begin with the Stage A at the end of 2019 with a completion by early 2026, and the second part of the project, Stage B1, will be completed in 2033.
