Work starts next month on White City link

HOCHTIEF STARTS construction next month on a new road scheme providing access to the 15ha White City development in west London.

The scheme is designed by Halcrow Fox and will tie in with a major cross- modal transport interchange as part of a £450M mixed-use scheme designed by architects Ian Ritchie and Benoy and financed by developer Chelsfield. This was given outline planning consent last month.

The project includes an elevated junction over road and rail lines, and slip roads connecting to the M41. Realignment of the motorway starts in May, piling for the reinforced earth slip roads will begin in August, and Hochtief will have four railway line possessions in December to place beams over the track.

Construction should finish in November 2000. 'Logistically the job's demanding because it's a tight site, we're dealing with rail and road, and have tight possessions,' said a Hochtief spokesman.
