Channel Tunnel Rail Link pioneer quits to push CrossRail


ONE OF the driving forces behind the Channel Tunnel Rail Link (CTRL) is to leave the project to promote the enabling bill for CrossRail, the proposed link between London's Paddington and Liverpool Street stations.

Bernard Gambrill is to quit CTRL client body Union Railways to join Cross London Rail Links as head of public affairs in August.

Gambrill's new roles will include consultation with local authorities about the CrossRail 1 preferred route and guiding the project's hybrid bill through Parliament, as he did for the CTRL.

CrossRail has been allocated £154M by central government to carry out feasibility work and to acquire statutory powers for the east-west CrossRail line 1 and developing the north-east-southwest line, CrossRail 2.

Cross London Rail Links, a 50/50 joint venture company formed by Transport for London (TfL) and the Strategic Rail Authority (SRA), hopes to announce the preferred CrossRail 1 scheme later this year.

Gambrill is speaking at NCE 's Civils 2002 event at the NEC in Birmingham on 11 June, discussing 'Civil Engineers - environmental protectors or destroyers?' www.
