Crossrail contributes to Europe’s largest conservation scheme - Page 2 of 3


The new jetty is due to be completed by summer 2012. The works are being undertaken by BAM Nuttall.

The jetty is sized to take two ships of approximately 2,500 tonnes at the same time. At peak, it is expected that five ships per day will be arriving at Wallasea. The Crouch Harbour Authority have agreed the works and, with support and assistance from Crossrail, has carried out major improvements to the buoyage of the River Crouch approach channels from Whitaker Spit inwards to Burnham Fairway.

Crossrail tunnelling will commence at Royal Oak in spring 2012 with the first ships containing the excavated material arriving at Wallasea Island during summer 2012.

Excavated material generated from the tunnelling operations for the western tunnels (Royal Oak to Farringdon) will exit at the Royal Oak Portal and be transported by freight train to Northfleet, Kent.

The Northfleet site will receive all the excavated material from Crossrail’s western tunnels. The primary purpose of the site is to receive excavated material by rail and briefly store it before loading it onto ships for delivery to Wallasea.
Northfleet has been chosen because it is located on the River Thames with deep water wharfage and disused links to the National Rail network, offering Crossrail the ability to transport excavated material from the new tunnels by rail and then transfer onto ship.
