The Costain Skanska joint venture (CSJV) has been awarded a total of seven Crossrail contracts, including two at Bond Street – the busiest shopping district in the UK. More than 155,000 passengers use the existing tube station daily; when Crossrail arrives in 2018 passenger numbers are anticipated to grow to over 225,000 a day.
The C411 contract, awarded to the CSJV in March 2011, comprises the construction of two station box structures as well as the western ticket hall in Davies Street and eastern ticket hall in Hanover Square, to provide surface access to either end of the twin mined platform tunnels.
The contract is valued at £100million, with works scheduled for completion September 2013.
It has also been awarded C412, which involves the main construction, platform fit-out and mechanical and electrical services for the western ticket Hall and eastern ticket hall. The contract is worth £100million, with project completion expected February 2017, ahead of Crossrail's opening in 2018.
On completion, 24 Crossrail 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.
The Bond Street Crossrail station contract has created hundreds of new jobs with thousands more created in the wider supply chain.
