The framework agreement also includes maintenance for up to 20 years, and is valued at between 207m GBP and 316m GBP depending on the final number of lifts and escalators needed at Birmingham Curzon Street, Interchange, Old Oak Common and the new HS2 platforms at London Euston.

The framework’s flexibility enables HS2 to change the number of escalators and/or lifts ordered in line with station requirements once the designs have been finalised.

Inge Delobelle, CEO of TK Elevator in Europe and Africa, said:

“We're honoured to partner with HS2 on this landmark project. We have a strong track record of supporting transport infrastructure projects across the world, and are confident that our proven expertise as well as our commitment to sustainability and high safety standards will help provide the best mobility solutions for this ambitious undertaking.”

All of HS2’s new stations will be built to BREEAM Excellent standard, with Interchange set to achieve the highest level of BREEAM.

Energy efficient lifts and escalators play a key role in achieving these industry standards.

Andrew Stephenson, HS2 Minister, said:

“HS2 is a revolutionary project that will improve transport, slash carbon emissions and create long-lasting jobs across the UK from manufacturing to the running of trains and it’s only right that it is accessible for everyone.

“These state-of-the-art lifts and escalators, alongside our commitment to step-free access from street to the train, will facilitate this while also acting as an eye-catching feature.”
