Design & Build - NEC3 Option C

Crossrail is one of Europe's largest transport infrastructure projects. It is building 42km of tunnels, 10 new stations and improving 30 more. The finished railway, which will be named the Elizabeth line when it opens in central London in 2018, will transform rail transport in London by increasing the capital’s rail capacity by 10% and cutting journey times across the capital. Crossrail will support the equivalent of 55,000 full time jobs and stimulate regeneration and economic growth.

Farringdon Station site is at the centre of the Crossrail programme, interfacing with the main tunnel drives and existing Network Rail and London Underground stations. Our works, delivered as part of BFK JV, include the station building, accesses and caverns, cross passages, reception chambers, lifts and escalator barrels using sprayed and in situ concrete lining split across two worksites - the Eastern and Western Ticket Halls. The site is bounded by Farringdon and Barbican stations, and the listed Moorgate Spur sidings under Smithfield Market.
