Transport for Wales (TfW) and delivery partner Alun Griffiths Ltd made the shortlist for this year’s Constructing Excellence in Wales Awards.
The pair were runners up for their work on the new Bow Street station project, delivered in partnership with Ceredigion County Council and funded by the Welsh Government and Department for Transport. It had been entered into the category for the Integration and Collaborative Working Award.
The project at Bow Street station involved the construction and reopening of the existing facility, which sits on the Cambrian Line between Borth and Aberystwyth railway stations. The revitalised station was given a new car park, bus interchange and cycle storage. The aim was for the station to increase accessibility to the rail network, improve transport integration and provide an alternative to the car for journeys.
TfW’s rail programme director, Karl Gilmore, said; “I’m exceptionally proud of the teams for being shortlisted and runners up of this award. The hard work and collaborative behaviours displayed across all areas of this exceptionally challenging project, made more difficult whilst being constructed throughout the COVID-19 global pandemic.
“TfW and partners would like to extend congratulations to the winners of this category, the Dragon’s Heart Hospital, a project that would have contributed towards saving tens of thousands of lives throughout the pandemic.”
