Crossrail has today formally announced the winners of two key central London station works contracts, which NCE was the first to reveal last week.
Bam Nuttall, Ferrovial Agroman and Kier Construction have won the estimated £375M C435 contract for Farringdon Station main works, while Balfour Beatty Civil Engineering, with Morgan Sindall Group and Vinci Construction Grands Projets has taken the likely £250M C512 contract for Whitechapel Station Main Works.
Crossrail has not yet confirmed the contract values but said it planned to award the remaining station contracts — for Bond Street, Tottenham Court Road and Liverpool Street − next year.
“Work is progressing along the Crossrail route ahead of tunnelling starting next spring,” said Crossrail programme director Andy Mitchell.
“Crossrail contracts continue to generate significant construction industry interest. As with the Paddington station contract earlier this year, high quality bids were received for both Farringdon and Whitechapel stations.”
