David Gutteridge, Mott MacDonald’s director for Crossrail commented, “We’re delighted to continue our design work on Liverpool Street station for Crossrail and to help in delivering this iconic project which will benefit both London and the UK’s economy.”

Mott MacDonald’s team of up to 100 professionals will cover all design aspects of the new station including civil, structural, architectural, mechanical and electrical as well as construction planning, passenger and transport modelling, and rail safety assurance. Mott MacDonald is already working on the station tunnel designs, and mechanical, electrical and ventilation systems through design packages awarded earlier this year.

Saleem Akbar, Mott MacDonald’s package manager for Liverpool Street Station said, “We’re excited to be working on the next design phase of this new underground station. It’s at the heart of the City and one of the most complex stations on the Crossrail route interfacing with overground services as well as all the underground lines that already pass through Liverpool Street Station. The team is committed to deliver designs to the highest specifications and our engineers, town planners, environmentalists, and, traffic and transportation professionals will work in close collaboration with sub-consultants including architects Wilkinson Eyre and London Bridge Associates to design a seamless passenger transport interchange which will enhance the passenger experience.”
