Excavated material (earth from stations and tunnels)

Six million tonnes of excavated material will be removed - enough soil to fill the equivalent of Wembley Stadium to the roof three times.

At least two-thirds of all Crossrail excavated material, more than 4.5 million tonnes, will be used to create the new RSPB nature reserve at Wallasea Island, creating Europe’s largest man-made coastal reserve.

Eighty-five per cent of earth will be transported by rail and water. This strategy has prevented the need for more than 270,000 lorry movements.

Crossrail is building two new ticket halls at Bond Street. One on Davies Street and one at Hanover Square. They will have step free access to platform level for Crossrail, Jubilee and Central lines. Bond Street Station

Crossrail is building two new ticket halls at Bond Street. One on Davies Street and one at Hanover Square. They will have step free access to platform level for Crossrail, Jubilee and Central lines.

More than 155,000 passengers currently use Bond Street Tube station daily and with the arrival of Crossrail in 2018, passenger numbers are expected to increase to 225,000.

Passengers will be able to travel on 24 trains an hour in both directions from Bond Street, reaching Heathrow in 26 minutes, Farringdon in 4 minutes and Stratford in 15 minutes.

Crossrail is building two new ticket halls at Bond Street. One on Davies Street and one at Hanover Square. They will have step free access to platform level for Crossrail, Jubilee and Central lines. Bond Street will be the first stop off point for the tunnel boring machines that are travelling 6.8 kilometres from Royal Oak in west London to Farringdon.

A new 300,000 square foot commercial, retail and residential property development has been approved for above the eastern ticket hall at Hanover Square.

Another development above our western ticket hall at Davies Street will be submitted to council within the next few weeks.

A total of 1.2 kilometres of passenger, service and platform tunnels are being mined here at Bond Street. These are in addition to the train tunnels that will pass through this station. A total of 12 kilometres of passenger, service and platform tunnels are being mined, mostly at the new underground stations.

Tunnel boring machines, Phyllis and Ada will pass through the ticket halls in the spring and early summer. More than 500 people are currently working on site including eight apprentices.
