In July 2017, ALIGN won the significant C1 package of the UK High Speed 2 line (HS2). Lot C1 consists of 21.6km of high speed rail infrastructure in a rural environment. This will include a 3.37km viaduct, 15.75km twin-tubes tunnel and five vent shafts handling both piston effect and tunnel ventilation.
Until the end of 2018, the team will be working on the development of the scheme design. Stage two will commence in early 2019 and run until 2023, and will comprise the design and build of C1. The integrated design team, known as Align-D, have now completed the mobilisation phase of the scheme design.
Working with the Align-D team - Jacobs and Ingérop - we are now in the process of developing the Stage One scheme design.
Between them, the Align companies have completed an impressive 178km of high-speed rail, 343km of rail tunnel and over 875km of linear projects, internationally.
We readily welcome suppliers to engage with us, through demonstrating capabilities for the C1 technical requirements, but also with an outstanding record in observing the highest standards in Health & Safety, innovation, diversity, skills, BIM, environmental management and sustainability.
Our opportunities across the C1-Area Central will be accessible through the CompeteFor portal
