We are at the forefront of rail infrastructure and station development, and seek to create regeneration opportunities , which help to fund new, state-of-the-art facilities.Warwick Parkway was the first station on the UK rail network not to have been delivered by Network Rail or its predecessors. Undertaken in partnership with Warwickshire County Council (WCC), the ‘Park and Ride' station opened in 2000 and quickly brought benefits to the local community, easing congestion on the local roads caused by a shortage of parking at Leamington and Warwick stations and providing quicker links to London for local businesses.
To the north of Birmingham, we repeated this success with Coleshill Parkway, a new ‘interchange' catering for rail and bus travellers, again in partnership with WCC. The station opened in 2007 and serves the town of Coleshill, employment areas around Hams Hall and provides a public transport connection to Birmingham International Airport. Furthermore, Aylesbury Vale Parkway links the growing population in the town's major Berryfields development with London and the rest of the network.
Our investment in the infrastructure of the Lewisham extension of Docklands Light Railways demonstrates our appetite for working with transport authorities to develop long term Public Private Partnerships for the funding and delivery of new rail infrastructure. This capability is now being deployed by John Laing in the wider rail sector both in the UK and overseas, most notably for the Intercity Express Programme, which will provide new rolling stock in the form of “Super Express trains” (initially) to serve the Great West Mainline and (subsequently) other lines in the UK, and also the Denver Eagle P3 project in the United States.
