BALFOUR Beatty VINCI has appointed Michael Dyke as managing director to lead its landmark HS2 joint venture.
He will be tasked with providing strategic leadership for the delivery of civil engineering contracts between the Long Itchington Wood Green tunnel to the West Coast Main Line tie-in, worth a combined total of around £5 billion.
Dyke has over 30 years’ experience in the industry and was most recently CEO for eight2O, the water alliance that brought together Thames Water and seven other contracting and consulting businesses.
Michael Dyke said, “This is a particularly exciting time to be joining Balfour Beatty VINCI, having received Notice to Proceed for the main works civil engineering contracts last month. I look forward to working alongside HS2 and our expert people and supply chain partners, to safely and successfully deliver this critical piece of national infrastructure.”
