Costain Skanska JV awarded second Crossrail contract

Costain, in joint venture with Skanska, announces that it has been awarded a second contract by Crossrail, as part of its enabling works framework, for the construction of the Pudding Mill Lane Portal.

The value of the contract is similar in size and scope to the Royal Oak portal previously announced in March.

Pudding Mill Lane Portal, which is close to Stratford and adjacent to the existing DLR, overland railways and the Lea River, will act as the transition ramp for Crossrail trains when entering and exiting the north east section of the central London tunnels.

Work will begin immediately and is scheduled for completion in summer 2011.

Commenting on the contract award, Andrew Wyllie, Chief Executive of Costain, said:

“To have secured another contract on Crossrail so soon after the Royal Oak contract is excellent news for Costain and reflects our recognised skills and capabilities in this arena. Crossrail will be one of the greatest engineering projects seen in the UK for some time and we are delighted to be playing a major early role in its delivery.”
