Amey has recently celebrated the award of a £4.5m contract to provide design and site supervisory services during platform extension works for the Thameslink Programme outer area stations.
Amey has also been appointed to design the Switches and Crossings Renewal work for Luton Station. This work was included in Amey’s contract in preference to the incumbent principal route contractor for the London and North East (LNE) region, in order to fully integrate all aspects of the upgrade programme at Luton.
Feedback from the Thameslink team regarding Amey’s performance has been extremely positive. Damien Gent, Outer Areas Programme Manager, describes their “experience in multifunctional design as invaluable for the success of the outer areas portfolio.”
The Thameslink Programme is a £5.5bn government funded programme, offering £3.5bn for infrastructure and £2bn on new rolling stock and associated supporting infrastructure. It will introduce new and improved stations, new track, and new longer, more frequent trains, with the express purpose of reducing overcrowding. These changes will completely transform the Thameslink Route.
