Crossrail has released a video showing the latest construction progress at Farringdon station in the run up to its opening in 2018.
Two new ticket halls linked by underground mined platforms are being built. The western entrance is located on the corner of Farringdon Road and Cowcross Street and will also provide access to and from the Thameslink ticket hall.
The eastern ticket hall is on the corner of Charterhouse Street, Lindsey Street and Long Lane.
New lifts in the station have had to fit around a complex network of infrastructure up to 25m underground and as such will move on a slope rather than the standard vertical motion.
The roof of the western ticket hall has been designed to reflect the area’s diamond heritage with a huge 360t reinforced concrete roof with a diagrid pattern of downstand beams.
Escalators from the ticket hall to the platforms will be installed over the next few months.
