Crossrail has awarded the Costain/Skanska Joint Venture the contract for the advance civil engineering works at Bond Street Station. The project is valued at around US$56M and is the third contract to be awarded to the joint venture on the Crossrail scheme.
The works comprise the construction of two station box structures, Western Ticket Hall and Eastern Ticket Hall to provide surface access at either end to twin mined platform tunnels. At the Western Ticket Hall, the works comprise the installation and construction of piling, diaphragm walling and plunge columns to the main box. At the Eastern Ticket Hall, the works comprise the installation and construction of piling and plunge columns to the main station box.
To undertake this project, which is a critical element of the forthcoming main Crossrail scheme, Costain‐Skanska will draw upon in‐house piling & foundations skills available to the joint venture.
Andrew Wyllie, Chief Executive of Costain, commented, “We are delighted to have been awarded additional work on Crossrail which again demonstrates our broad range of capabilities in the rail sector.”
Work will begin immediately and is estimated for completion in early 2012.
