Building: "WSP lands key role on Old Oak 'super hub'"



"WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff has been appointed by Network Rail to deliver engineering consultancy and infrastructure planning services at Old Oak Common, the joint ‘super hub’ station for Crossrail and HS2 in west London.

WSP will undertake an early phase study into realigning the existing tracks at the Old Oak Common depot to create space for a new station, which will handle around 250,000 passengers a day.

The study is part of a plan to improve interchange between HS2, Crossrail and the Great Western Main line, as well as Heathrow Express and other local public transport.

The engineering consultant was appointed in 2012 to develop a design for high speed and conventional railway systems along the HS2 route from London to Birmingham, including interface works at Old Oak Common.

Darren Reed, WSP’s head of rail, said:
"This project has national significance as it involves HS2, Crossrail, the main Western rail artery and the express service to the UK’s largest airport.

The complexity of this project requires excellence in designing, planning and engineering, and we are looking forward to delivering the benefits of our combined railway, station, and civil engineering expertise."
