Crossrail confirmed the shortlist for C520 Custom House station…
Crossrail today confirmed the shortlist for C520 Custom House station. The indicative value of the main construction contract is in the region of £35 million.
- Laing O’Rourke Construction Limited;
- Hochtief UK Construction Limited and Hochtief Solutions AG JV;
- Costain Limited; and
- Geoffrey Osbourne Limited.
All shortlisted organisations performed strongly at pre-qualification stage.
The new Crossrail Custom House station, located in east London, is the only above ground station within Crossrail’s central section.
The new station will not only assist with the continued regeneration of the Royal Docks but also improve links between central London and the ExCeL Exhibition Centre. When Crossrail opens, passengers will be able to reach Canary Wharf in 4 minutes, Bond Street in 17 minutes and Heathrow Airport in less than 45 minutes.
The new Crossrail station will be built on the site of the former North London Line station which closed to passengers in December 2006. The new station will include a new ticket hall, interchange with Docklands Light Railway (DLR) and step-free access between the street and Crossrail platforms.
The contract for Custom House station will be awarded later this year. Construction will begin in early 2013 with the station completed in 2018.
