AMEC has been awarded a multi-million pound contract by rail operator Union Railways North to provide the mechanical electrical and piped services for the new Network Rail Thameslink line station beneath St Pancras in central London.
Starting immediately, AMEC will carry out the design, procurement, installation, commissioning and integration of the mechanical, electrical and specialist services for the new facility. Work will take place alongside the existing railway and will require careful planning to ensure that current rail operations are unaffected.
The new station, whose main structure has already been built underneath the recently renovated St Pancras Network Rail station, will provide a connection between the Channel Tunnel Rail Link and the rail network.
The work is scheduled for completion in late 2007. AMEC will work closely with Union Railway North’s project management contractor, Rail Link Engineering, to deliver the project, the value of which has not been announced.
