Several new over and underbridges will be constructed plus cut and cover tunnels and jacked boxes. Also included is a new high speed connection at Fawkham Junction into the mainline into Waterloo which will carry trains until Section 2 opens into St Pancras.

Contract 330 looking west towards Gravesend. A new high speed link is being constructed from the end of Section 1 of the CTRL at Fawkham Junction to join the existing rail line to Waterloo. The new link follows the line of a disused rail line which is being widened and regraded to accommodate the new CTRL twin track.
