In joint venture with Costain Skanska were awarded a contract by Crossrail as part of its enabling works framework for the construction of Royal Oak Portal.
Market segment: Railways
RoSPA Silver Award 2011
Constructing the projectRoyal Oak Portal, which is adjacent to Paddington main line station, will act as the transition ramp for Crossrail trains when entering and exiting the central London tunnels. Under the £15 million contract, the team undertook the construction of a reinforced concrete structure that will include a diaphragm wall and major temporary works to construct reinforced concrete embedded retaining walls to form the tunnel portal.
To undertake this project, which is the first and a critical element of the forthcoming main Crossrail tunnelling works, Costain‐Skanska will draw upon in‐house skills available to the joint venture including Piling & Foundations and utility service diversions and protection.
