Crossrail annouce architects for Europe's largest construction project

A further landmark has been reached today, in Europe’s largest construction project, with Crossrail announcing its intention to award a set of contracts for detailed design services for three tunnel portals and four of the central stations under its framework agreements.

The contracts in this set are as follows:

Package C154 – Victoria Dock Portal – Hyder
Package C156 – North Woolwich and Plumstead Portals – Capita Symonds
Package C132 – Bond Street Station – WSP
Package C130 – Paddington Station – Scott Wilson
Package C138 – Liverpool Street Station – Mott MacDonald
Package C140 – Whitechapel Station – Hyder

Under the Crossrail Design Framework Agreements announced in December 2008, the selected firms for each of the seven design categories have the opportunity to compete for packages of design work on the project. Crossrail announced its first batch of contracts in May this year.

Dr Graham Plant, Programme Director at Crossrail said: “With the latest announcement Crossrail has reached a major milestone in the detailed design process, as the designs for Crossrail stations along the central route will play a key role in delivering a world-class affordable railway. We look forward to working closely with each of these companies.”

Crossrail is a 118 km rail line crossing London from Maidenhead and Heathrow in the west, through new twin-bore 21 km tunnels under central London to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east. It will bring an additional 1.5 million people within 60 minutes commuting distance of London's key business districts.
