HS2 has awarded the framework to deliver around 300 state-of-the-art lifts and escalators at four new stations to TK Elevator.
More than 160 lifts and 130 escalators will need to be delivered at Birmingham Curzon Street, Interchange, Old Oak Common and London Euston stations.
TK Elevator currently employs around 400 people across the UK and the framework will give hundreds of thousands of people access to HS2 trains.
The final value of the framework agreement is expected to be between £207m and £316m depending on the number of lifts and escalators required.
HS2 Minister Andrew Stephenson spoke on the lifts and escalators set to be installed at HS2 stations.
Mr Stephenson said: “HS2 is a revolutionary project that will improve transport, slash carbon emissions and create long-lasting jobs… 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.”
As station designs are finalised this flexible approach will allow HS2 to vary the number of lifts and escalators needed.
The framework also includes maintenance for up to 20 years in addition to the manufacture and installation work.
The new stations in London and Birmingham will be fully accessible and zero carbon in terms of day-to-day operations.
HS2’s stations will be built to the highest industry standard of sustainable lifetime performance ‘BREEAM Excellent’ with Interchange achieving ‘BREEAM Outstanding’.
Andrew Cubitt, HS2 Ltd’s Procurement Director commented on the framework with TK Elevator.
Mr Cubitt said: “These lifts and escalators will be an essential part of our four iconic new stations.
“Moving hundreds of thousands of people every day and helping us to ensure seamless journeys for everyone.
“I’d like to congratulate TK Elevator on their award of the framework.
“I look forward to seeing them deliver a vital part of the HS2 project.”
Old Oak Common station will feature the longest escalators which will take passengers 13.5m from the subsurface to concourse level.
HS2 services will meet Crossrail services at the station and will boast over 50 lifts and escalators.
