We are delighted to announce the award by SPL POWERLINES UK HOLDING LIMITED to WCS of the civil design of East Hyde and Napsbury substations, HV cable routes and DNO supply on the Midland Mainline Electrification project. Working closely with our client and Network Rail this work is required to implement the detailed design of the upgrade needed to the existing OLE infrastructure and Power system to enable the operation of 6 additional Electric Powered trains per hour between St Pancras Station and and Bedford Station.

This project builds upon the great work our substations team has produced on the Key Output 1 section of the project with the electrical and civils works we have carried out nearing completion. Some very welcome feedback we received for this project from the end client below:

“The design was of a very high quality… I hope we get to work with such pragmatic and experienced design houses on future electrification projects.”

– Helen Butcher, Project manager, Capital Delivery Eastern, Network Rail

We are looking forward to being part of this exciting project! #civilengineering#railways#electrification
