Costain is well respected for the delivery of signature rail termini and stations such as St Pancras International, Farringdon Thameslink and London Underground's Bond Street. Edwards wants to build on this track record and experience adding specialist skills such as track electrification, signalling and multidisciplinary operation and maintenance activities.
