Costain Secures £150m Gatwick Deal

Construction News Image
The £150 million redevelopment of Gatwick Airport station is set to move forward with contractor Costain.

After successfully leading the scheme through planning and design stages, the firm has now been selected to deliver the improvement works at the facility.

The work will create a safer, more convenient interchange between the station platforms and Gatwick International Airport, delivering increased capacity to support airport growth and a significantly enhanced passenger experience.

Network Rail Southern Region is spearheading the project.

Alex Vaughan, chief executive officer at Costain, commented: "The development at Gatwick will transform the existing station and provide a greatly enhanced experience for airport and passengers.

"Costain's extensive capability to deliver complex programmes, using leading edge smart technology, will ensure travellers are kept moving at every stage of the works, minimising disruption during this capacity-critical redevelopment."

Gatwick Airport station is one of the 10 busiest stations in the UK outside of London, handling in excess of 20 million passengers annually.

Work is expected to begin on the upgrades in early 2020, with completion scheduled in 2022.
