To feed this demand, NCE is working with the Crossrail team to produce a supplement looking, in detail, at how the tunnels, stations and shafts will be built and how their construction will be managed. We gave you an overview of the project in our first Crossrail supplement last year.
This new venture, to be published on 19 March, is intended to give chapter and verse on the engineering involved. We’ll be looking at the management, design, logistics, supply and contracting challenges ahead.
The supplement will also act as a preview to an exciting NCE conference on the project taking place in London on 31 March which is focusing on "Unlocking major project opportunities." Speakers include Transport for London commissioner Peter Hendy, Greater London Authority director of transport policy Kulveer Ranger and London Underground director of engineering David Waboso as well as Crossrail’s MD Keith Berryman and engineering director David Anderson.
For more information on the Crossrail supplement please contact Leanne Morgan on 020 7728 4595 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Crossrail safety drive for schools:
Primary and secondary school students have submitted posters, poems and even raps as part of a competition advising on the possible dangers around Crossrail worksites as the project ramps up.
Children were also asked to submit ideas for hoarding designs. The winners, announced last week, were Shan Khalid, aged 11, from Newham, Sujit Aktar, aged 10 from Tower Hamlets, Ayaat Jaway, aged 13, and Tarik Habak, aged 11, both from Fulham.
