£14.5m Crossrail Preparations Over Bank Holiday completed
This bank holiday Network Rail completed a £14.5m programme of works at 21 locations. This was from the beginning of the May bank holiday weekend to prepare tracks, infrastructure and stations for Crossrail.
The work was carried out by 1,800 people and included construction work for the new station building at Abbey Wood as well as track remodelling, electrification and signalling commission at Old Oak Common and Southall and Hayes & Harlington.
Furthermore, at Stockley junction works were carried out that involved 25 concrete sections being lifted into place to build a ramp for a flyover to double rail traffic to Heathrow.
The Crossrail Programme director stated the following;
“There is never a good time to close the railway but with far fewer people travelling over the long weekend, we had a good opportunity to deliver these vital improvements. With meticulous planning along with the hard work and dedication of our team and contractors, we have once again delivered a lot of complex work and taken a big step towards making the Elizabeth line a reality.”
