On Tuesday logistics specialist DHL Exel Supply Chain won the job to research how best to minimise impact of Crossrail’s construction on central London.
The study will determine the most efficient way for materials and equipment to be delivered to key central London construction sites while also ensuring smooth traffic flows.
The appointment follows a busy Christmas period for the east-west London rail scheme, with Canary Wharf Group agreeing to design and build the £500M Isle of Dogs station and contribute £150M to its construction.
Crossrail client Cross London Rail Links completed a weeklong exhaustive interview process for the key roles of programme partner and project delivery partner at the ICE.
A shortlist of firms was also invited to tender to become Crossrail’s project representative, which will review reports, programmes and technical designs to ensure the scheme is delivered on time.
