Constructing the project
To undertake this project, which is a critical element of the main Crossrail scheme, Costain Skanska has drawn upon its in-house piling and foundations expertise.
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.
