Final four in Crossrail Custom House bid revealed

Crossrail has revealed a shortlist of four bidders for the C520 Custom House station contract in east London worth around £35M.

Contractors shortlisted in the final four are Laing O’Rourke, Hochtief, Costain, and Geoffrey Osbourne.

The contract will be awarded this year with construction starting early next year, due for completion by 2018. The station is being built on the site of a former North London Line station of the same name, which closed in 2006.

Custom House station will be part of the regeneration of the Royal Docks as well as improve links between central London and the ExCel Exhibition Centre. Custom House will be the only above ground station within the central section of Crossrail.

Custom House station will include a new ticket hall, an interchange with Docklands Light Railway (DLR) and step-free access between the street and Crossrail platforms.

Once completed passengers will be able to reach Canary Wharf in four minutes, Bond Street in 17 minutes and Heathrow Airport in less than 45 minutes from the new station.
