Bidding begins for HS2 London stations which will create 4,000 jobs

This week, the tendering process starts for contractors to build HS2’s Euston station and Old Oak Common transport hub. Four contractors will be shortlisted to bid for nearly £3bn of work, with the transformation of Euston station budgeted at £1.65bn and the construction split into two phases. 

The construction of the two stations is expected to create 4,000 jobs, starting with the redevelopment of Euston’s 11 platform station which will nearly triple capacity. The contract will be awarded in the autumn next year.

Graham Day, Department Manager for rail, Matchtech comments: 

“This announcement, which has quickly followed the award of the phase one civils packages, is incredibly exciting for the industry and highlights the sheer scale of HS2 and the range of job opportunities available on the scheme. The recent package awards will create a huge demand particularly for design and management professionals. We anticipate that civil discipline engineers and BIM modellers will be in increasingly high demand as we move toward the latter part of this year and into 2018.”
