SYNOPSIS

The Elizabeth line is a new railway for London and the South East, running from Reading and Heathrow in the west, through 42km (26 miles) of new tunnels under central London to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east. The Elizabeth line is being delivered by Crossrail Limited, with Bechtel as the Project Delivery Partner. The £14.8 billion Crossrail programme is currently Europe’s biggest infrastructure project. Construction began in 2009, and is now more than 90% complete. The service will be run by Transport for London (TfL) through central London from December 2018, when the new railway will be fully integrated with TfL’s existing transport network.

When the Elizabeth line commences services from 2018, Farringdon station will be one of the busiest in the UK, connecting with Thameslink and the London Underground to provide links with outer London, the home counties, the City, Canary Wharf and three of London’s five airports. Two new ticket halls are connected by the longest underground mined platforms on the Crossrail programme. This major transport interchange site has had to fit within a complex infrastructure network up to 25 metres below ground. This presentation will explore some of the challenges in building this major underground facility as well as the features and design that make Farringdon unique.
