Balfour Beatty has been awarded a contract worth around £43 million by Transport for London (TfL) to deliver upgrade works on the Piccadilly line.

This latest award marks the second contract to be awarded under the ‘London Underground High Voltage (HV) Power’ framework, to which Balfour Beatty was appointed last year.

Balfour Beatty will be responsible for the design, supply and installation of new assets at Hatton Cross and Hounslow substations, including Transformer Rectifiers, High Voltage and Low Voltage Switchboards, Direct Current Switchboards and Auxiliary Transformers, and associated cable routes.

This work will support the increase in ‘Traction Power’ needed for the next generation of Piccadilly line trains and to deliver increased capacity along the route.

Mick Rayner, Managing Director of Balfour Beatty’s Rail business, said: “This latest contract award is testament to our long-standing relationship with Transport for London, having worked collaboratively with them for the last 20 years.

“We look forward to further supporting the upgrade and enhancement of the Piccadilly line helping to provide a smooth and reliable service for the travelling public across the city.”

Works are due to commence by the end of the year, with completion expected in 2026.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
