Crossrail today announced its intention to award the main construction contract for the Western Ticket Hall at Tottenham Court Road.
C422 Tottenham Court Road station: Laing O’Rourke Construction Ltd.
In line with European procurement rules the contract is subject to a ten-day standstill period.
Andy Mitchell, Crossrail Programme Director said: “Crossrail’s station at Tottenham Court Road will transform access to the West End while also acting as a catalyst for the major development and regeneration of the local area. Twenty-four 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.”
Tottenham Court Road Crossrail station will be directly connected to the neighbouring Tube station allowing passengers to interchange between Crossrail and London Underground services.
Following completion of the works, a major over-site development will be constructed above the Crossrail station.
When it opens Crossrail will link the West End to Canary Wharf in 12 minutes, Stratford in 13 minutes and Heathrow in less than 30 minutes.
