Binns to replace Dulake at Crossrail

Thameslink upgrade engineering guru Chris Binns is to join Crossrail.

Binns has been head of engineering on Network Rail’s £6.5bn Thameslink Programme for six years.

Swapping the north-south London line for the capital’s under-construction east-west link, Binns will become chief engineer on the £14bn Crossrail scheme.

He will replace Chris Dulake, who is himself moving to the £50bn High Speed 2 project later this month.

Binns has been with Network Rail for 12 years. His previous roles include managing director for Bombardier Transportation (Signal) UK; technical director for Adtranz (Signal) UK; and head of engineering for GEC – Alstom Signalling.

At Crossrail, he will report to technical director Chris Sexton.
