Warrington West Railway Station wins top award

The £20.5 million Warrington West railway station has won the Large Project category at the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) North West Awards.

The station, which opened last December, was funded by Warrington Borough Council, the Department for Transport, developer contributions and Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership.

The project was delivered by Balfour Beatty with the support of Network Rail who own and operate the railway infrastructure in England, Wales and Scotland.

The ICE awards this year took place virtually, with nominees joining the live ceremony online.

Emma Antrobus, Director of the ICE North West, said: “Our annual awards showcase some of the fantastic civil engineering that’s happening across the region.

“It took a bit of organising but we’re so pleased to have been able to go ahead with this year’s awards in a different way, shining a light on some of the most innovative and beneficial civil engineering which has taken place in our region over the past 12 months.

“It is particularly at challenging times like this that we should be championing every individual who keeps our society functioning. I’d like to congratulate everyone who won and thank all the attendees for taking the time to join our online ceremony.”
