Crossrail submits OJEU for advance works

Crossrail Ltd has today submitted an OJEU notice for advance works at five central London Crossrail stations: Bond Street, Tottenham Court Road, Farringdon, Liverpool Street and Whitechapel Stations.

Works will vary for each station but will include secant piles, bored piles, diaphragm walling and associated civils works, excavation, drainage diversion, demolition, shaft construction and settlement monitoring and mitigation.

Programme Director Andy Mitchell said: “These significant pieces of work will be crucial to the Crossrail programme as they will enable each station to receive the Tunnel Boring Machines on schedule at its site.”

Crossrail will run 118 km 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. When Crossrail opens in 2017 it will bring an additional 1.5 million people within 60 minutes commuting distance of London's key business districts.
