Hochtief wins contract for Hitchin flover

The award to build the £62 million flyover at Hitchin which will take the Down Cambridge line over the ECML has been awarded to Hochtief.

This will be a 2km of new railway and involves 1 1,200m embankment and a 30-span viaduct at 840m long to span the East Coast Main Line.

This has long been a bottleneck as Cambridge bound trains conflict with Up ECML services. Network Rail reports there has been a 35% rise in passengers from Peterborough and an 18% rise in passengers between London and Cambridge.
