Crossrail: Work Completed Over The Easter Weekend

Crossrail’s £30 million worth of works was completed over the four-day Easter weekend and carried out by more than 3,000 workers as part of preparing the existing railway for the Crossrail programme between London, Berkshire, and Essex.
The works completed over the Easter period will incorporate the new Crossrail tunnel beneath the city of London with the previous rail network. The Crossrail route will be three-quarters above ground through outer London.
The £30 million package was carried out in west London to electrify the railway by making more reliable electric trains which prove to be quicker, quieter and will be new for 2017. Network Rail has stated that the works will bring in more than 1.5 million people to central London as it will now take around 45 minutes from Berkshire and Essex, therefore benefiting many people getting them to specific their destination quicker.
Crossrail surface Director has stated, “This will bring us a step closer to delivering quicker journeys, improved stations and better connections for local people along the route.”
At tusp, we have a lot of associates from Essex that travel to London on a regular basis to attend meetings and to work in the area. After the completion of Crossrail it will reduce their time to travel to the city of London.
