St Helens Station
Merseytravel and Network Rail invited tenders for the reconstruction of the station, including new footbridges and lifts. The new station building and facilities, designed by SBS Architects of Manchester were rebuilt at a total cost of m, just a few yards from the site of the 1960s built station building. Britcon Engineering were pleased to assist C Spencer, Network Rails Principal Contractor with the Structural Steelwork requirements for this high profile project.
The new footbridge was lifted into place in the early hours of 22 January 2007. Construction work was completed in the summer, with the new waiting rooms and footbridge opened to passengers on 19 September.
Our involvement comprised a new station building, a new pedestrian overbridge, 2 lifts, one to each platform from the new pedestrian overbridge and 2 flights of steps, one to each platform from the pedestrian overbridge.
