£3bn to be invested into two rail transport interchanges:
The expected value of the Euston contract is £1.65bn. The work will nearly triple capacity, adding eleven new platforms over two phases. HS2 will also link Euston and Euston Square into one station for the first time, and provide for a potential future connection to Crossrail 2.
The Old Oak Common work is set to be worth £1.3bn and will deliver a brand new integrated transport hub with direct HS2 services north.
Work to transform Euston station into a gateway to the capital fit for the 21st Century and deliver a brand new transport hub at Old Oak Common ready for the arrival of High Speed Two (HS2), took a step forward today with the start of the search for the firms that will build the 2 London stations. The announcement comes after the closure of Euston station over the weekend for essential HS2 preparatory works. The works were completed on time allowing services to run as scheduled on Bank Holiday Monday.
