Foster + Partners' and Halcrow's vision for the Thames Hub - an integrated rail, freight logistics, aviation and energy hub in the Thames Estuary – has been judged ‘Project of the Year’ in the 2012 Global AirRail Awards.
The Global AirRail Awards are the first ever international awards dedicated to the air-rail market. The Awards are part of the AirRail NEWS Programme that promotes rail connections with airports. Recognising best practice, the awards celebrate new technologies and innovations, customer service and marketing, with a focus on vision and creativity.
The awards ceremony took place on 24 May at a gala dinner in Stockholm – the home of this year's Future of AirRail conference and base of the 2011 winner of The Project of the Year, Arlanda Express.
