Network Rail issues tender for Crossrail works

Network Rail has issued a tender for the majority of Crossrail works planned on the northeast surface section of the Crossrail route, between Stratford in east London and Shenfield in Essex.

Work under the tender includes the design and build of major station improvements at Romford and Ilford, as well as improvements at stations including Forest Gate, Goodmayes, Harold Wood, Gidea Park, Chadwell Heath and Brentwood. Other works will include extra train stabling capacity and turnback facilities.

Platform extensions will allow longer, higher capacity trains to run, and new lifts to enable step-free access will be installed at many stations along the route.

As per reports, Balfour Beatty, Costain, Hochtief and VolkerFitzpatrick have been invited to tender. The contract will be awarded in late 2013. The detailed design phase will begin in early 2014 while the main works will take place between late 2014 and 2017.
