The Crossrail programme is Europe’s largest civil engineering construction project. On completion it will connect London and the South East with a new high frequency railway.
Tottenham Court Road Station is one of London’s busiest, coping with over 150,000 passenger journeys per day. The Crossrail works at this station are tasked with totally redeveloping the station and associated tunnelling in a £1bn transformation providing congestion relief, delivering a bigger ticket hall, installing additional escalators and creating a new commuter interface with London Underground and Crossrail services. Due to the keen media coverage and PHD’s renowned presence and expertise in the rail sector, we are proud to have been commissioned as one of the ﬁrst contractors on site to start the enabling works on this exciting project.
Works carried out by PHD include independent access scaffold to enable high level rendering and waterprooﬁng of adjourning buildings, edge protection for further roof inspections, heavy duty protection gantry safeguarding the public interface, beam work to carry ofﬁce cabins, staircases and turning platforms leading to the cabins, monarflex wrapping and hoarding, independent scaffold to carry wall mounted cameras to ﬁlm site progress, temporary scaffold for the removal of lift motor cars and a series of towers, loading gantries, heavy duty lifting frames and edge protection in preparation for the arrival of materials and operatives from other trades.
