Sweett has been involved with Thameslink since 2006 when it was first engaged to provide support to Network Rail’s programme and project teams in the form of pre and some post contract commercial management services. 

For the newly awarded four-year commission, Sweett is one of several firms appointed to continue the provision of this support for a number of Thameslink schemes.

These will include the remodelling of the operational infrastructure in the area of London Bridge between Waterloo East, Blackfriars Junction and New Cross, New Cross Gate station and South Bermondsey station;  rebuilding of London Bridge Station to cater for the expected passenger growth and the increased train service; infrastructure changes in the outer areas on the Peterborough, Cambridge, and Sussex routes to allow for the introduction of 12 car trains and an increased train service;  introduction of automatic train operation (ATO) between St Pancras and London Bridge.
