Costain has been improving the lives of people through infrastructure since 1865. We have built airports, petrochemical plants, waste treatment works and schools – creating the building blocks of modern life and improving the quality of life of the people who use them. Some of our recent projects include the £400m redevelopment project at London Bridge Station, the HS2 railway line linking London to the East Midlands and the Thames Tideway Tunnel which is an under-construction 25km tunnel which will provide capture, storage and conveyance of almost all the combined raw sewage and rainwater discharges that currently overflow into the river.
We will aim to place you as close as possible to your desired home location but you may be expected to be flexible during the course of your apprenticeship.

Various other improvements are required along the scheme such as increased CCTV, speed cameras and electronic signage. Modifications to existing bridges to allow traffic to fit on the widened running surface is also required. The overall budget scheme is in excess of £400 million.
