The Bechtel and Network Rail-developed Reading Station railway has received the Project of the Year award at the U.K. rail industry“™s National Rail Awards.
The companies were recognized for what the judges described as “collaborative working and careful planning,“ Bechtel said Wednesday.
“Collaboration between Network Rail, train operators, passengers and other stakeholders was essential to the success of Reading Station“™s transformation,“ said Ailie MacAdam, general manager for Europe and Africa at Bechtel.
Bechtel and Network Rail completed the redevelopment program in early September.
Bechtel estimates the railway station will accommodate up to 30 million passengers annually by 2030.
