Cabling tunnel under Liverpool Street Bloomfield

Other works – new 53 m long cable tunnel completed

Five metres below the ground a new 53 metre long cable tunnel to connect the new substation has now been completed – the first permanent sprayed concrete lining tunnel to be finished on the Crossrail project. The three main contractors on the Liverpool Street project BAM Nuttall Kier Joint Venture, Laing O’Rourke, and Vinci Construction have each been awarded Crossrail’s Green Line Scheme award - a project-wide initiative to drive and reward environmental performance throughout Crossrail sites.

Bill Tucker, Crossrail Area Director Central said: “Liverpool Street is one of Crossrail’s most challenging station projects with several construction sites located in a tightly constrained area but work is making good progress.

The complexity of this project is matched only by the huge improvements it will deliver, with the new station set to create extra capacity, improved connections and new transport links to the City of London.

Construction of tunnels beneath Finsbury Circus at Crossrai's Liverpool Street site   With the continued support of the City of London and London Underground we are working hard to minimise disruption so we would like to thank local businesses for their patience while we carry out these essential works.”

When Crossrail opens in 2018, the new Crossrail services will help ease overcrowding and will become an important interchange on the Crossrail route. Journey times from Liverpool Street to Heathrow Airport will be only 33 minutes, whilst Liverpool Street to Canary Wharf will be reduced to just 7 minutes.
