Costain has been awarded the project services contract to deliver the replacement of the UK’s $160M Humber Estuary Crossing for power company National Grid. The pipeline will connect to the existing National Grid AGI sites at Paull and Goxhill and will be 5.4km long, of which 5km will be tunnelled by TBM.

Costain will be providing a full range of project services to National Grid. The works will span across multiple disciplines including health, safety, project management, project controls and planning, commercial management, engineering, risk management and other specialist tunnelling disciplines.
