We have been awarded a total of 13 Crossrail contracts, including two at Bond Street – the busiest shopping district in the UK. More than 155,000 passengers use the existing tube station daily; when Crossrail arrives in 2018 passenger numbers are anticipated to grow to over 225,000 a day.
The C411 contract, awarded in March 2011, included the construction of two station box structures as well as the western ticket hall in Davies Street and eastern ticket hall in Hanover Square, to provide surface access at either end of the twin mined platform tunnels.
It was also awarded C412, which involves the main construction, platform fit-out and mechanical and electrical services for the western ticket hall and eastern ticket hall. On completion, 24 Crossrail trains an hour in each direction will pass through the station during peak periods, hugely enhancing the capacity at one of central London’s busiest stations.
The Bond Street Crossrail station contract has created hundreds of new jobs with thousands more created in the wider supply chain. The joint venture team worked collaboratively with the tunnelling, track and rail power contractors, and engaged with the local community, making sure they were informed ensuring works were carried out in a sensitive manner.
