Andy Mitchell, Crossrail Programme Director said: “Crossrail’s station at Tottenham Court Road will transform access to the West End while also acting as a catalyst for the major development and regeneration of the local area.
“Twenty-four 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.”
Tottenham Court Road Crossrail station will be directly connected to the neighbouring Tube station allowing passengers to interchange between Crossrail and London Underground services.
Following completion of the works, a major over-site development will be constructed above the Crossrail station.
The Crossrail station main works contract (C422) includes the major structural work and fit-out of the station’s Western Ticket Hall and fit-out of the station tunnels and Goslett Yard Box, which will link the Crossrail station to Tottenham Court Road Tube station.
Balfour Beatty Morgan Vinci Joint Venture has completed the construction of the foundations for Crossrail’s Western Ticket Hall at Tottenham Court Road (Contract C421).
Excavation of the ticket hall (Contract C300) is being undertaken by BAM Nuttall / Ferrovial Agroman /Kier JV.
