British Steel is at the heart of a £35million transformation of Middlesbrough Rail Station – with a 200-tonne crane lifting in 40 tonnes of beams and columns.
They will form part of the ticket hall, new staircase, wall structures and undercroft, breathing new life into the site with new walkways and spaces for businesses, and providing increased capacity for more rail services.
An extension to the existing Platform 2 to cater for intercity rail services and a new Platform 3 to accommodate the planned increase in passenger rail services in the coming years are all part of the huge revamp. Work is being carried out by Story Contracting on behalf of Network Rail.
Our involvement in this project underlines how we value the importance of UK steelmaking supporting UK construction and infrastructure.
British Steel Strategy and Marketing Director Lisa Coulson said: “Building Stronger Futures is what we are about at British Steel and we are delighted we have been able to manufacture and supply vital materials to such an important and transformative project. In this case a local workforce has been key to the development of a pivotal project on their own doorstep.”
Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen said: “I’m delighted that all the structural steel for the site has come from British Steel – it’s a big endorsement of what we do best.”
The project is set to be completed next year.
