‘Our track record in delivering capital projects for BAA, including the rail systems element of Terminal Five, along with the strong business relationship forged between us, have been instrumental in completing this important agreement.’



Balfour Beatty is currently working on the first phase of the Heathrow East Satellite Project, which is scheduled for completion in late 2009 and expected to be operational in early 2010.
