Interim Waterloo International Terminal Project Announced as Finalist at Rail Business Awards
End-to-end collaboration between industry experts, the train operator, the route, the project teams and suppliers has resulted in the Interim Waterloo International Terminal Project being announced as a finalist for the 2014 Rail Business Awards in the Station Excellence category.
As part of the highly collaborative team with Network Rail Infrastructure Projects, the South Western Railway Alliance (South West Trains and Network Rail Wessex), and London & Continental Railway, Osborne’s “One Team Wessex” completed the final design and construction to successfully provide the busiest train station in the UK with two additional operational platforms, with full consideration for the long term plans of the Terminal in the future. The scheme provides operational and capacity benefits to Waterloo Station and enhanced facilities to passengers to minimise congestion and disruption during times of network irregularities.
Following seven years of passengers looking over at the Waterloo International Terminal and wondering “Why aren’t those platforms being used?” the Interim Waterloo International Terminal Project marks the most significant step yet in bringing the building back into full operational use within the next five years. It is a sign of what the industry can achieve when the train operator, the route, project teams, and suppliers work together and think differently.
The Awards Dinner will be at the Park Lane London Hilton on Thursday 26 February 2015. The Rail Business of the year will be announced and the winners and highly commended in each category, will be revealed.
