Dyke, who previously headed the Thames Water eight₂O alliance, will be responsible for delivery of HS2 main civil engineering contracts between the Long Itchington Wood Green tunnel to the West Coast Main Line tie-in.
These are together worth around £5bn.
Before taking the role of chief executive officer for eight₂O, the water alliance that brought together Thames Water and seven other contracting and consulting firms, he worked at Lendlease as managing director for construction in the EMEA territory for two years.
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.”
