CROSSRAIL GAINS PLANNING CONSENT FOR NEW HOMES ABOVE WOOLWICH STATION
Wednesday 3rd September 2014



Crossrail has received a green light from the Royal Borough of Greenwich to build nearly 400 new homes above the new Woolwich Crossrail station

The major new residential development, to be known as Armourer’s Court, will consist of approximately 490,000 sq ft in five high quality buildings of varying heights set around a landscaped garden. Carefully located retail and business space will be at ground level.

The Armourer’s Court design by architects TP Bennett was reviewed by Design Council CABE and created in consultation with the local community, Royal Borough of Greenwich, Greater London Authority and English Heritage. It draws upon the heritage of the nearby Royal Arsenal buildings, with brick, metal and glass fašades.

Crossrail will market the Armourer’s Court site to potential development partners in the coming year and aims to commence construction once the station has been completed in 2018. It is part of Crossrail’s strategy to develop three million sq ft of new commercial and residential space above stations, returning funds to the Crossrail budget and regenerating urban areas all along the line

Consultation was launched on extension of Gospel Oak to Barking line (GOBLIN) of London Overground from Barking to new development at Barking Riverside. When I heard about this, initially I thought that there would be an extension Dagenham Dock. But now... Map taken from consultation page:



DLR extension plan to this area put on hold because of cost, which is ú700m, Overground costs ú170m If approved, Overground extension will be completed in 2019

Waterloo International fully open for local trains 'in 2017'
Saturday 6 September 2014

The former Eurostar platforms at Waterloo Station will be fully returned to public use by domestic commuter trains in 2017 - ten years after the last cross-channel train left the terminal - the Government said this week

"I am very aware of how crowded South West Trains' suburban services are, particularly in the morning peak," transport minister Claire Perry told Parliament in a written statement this week.

"The result of the department's successful negotiation is 150 new vehicles – Thameslink variants – which will be used on the Windsor lines, leading to an internal cascade which will deliver a full 10 car suburban network, making use of platforms 1 to 4 at Waterloo which Network Rail are extending.

"The Windsor line trains will use the platforms at Waterloo International, which are being brought back into full use in 2017.

"There are a number of additional works along the route and at stations which will deliver benefits for passengers."

The 150 new carriages will be formed into 30 five-car trains. The Siemens Desiro City units will be similar in design to the class 700 trains recently ordered for the north-south Thameslink route

Knorr-Bremse to supply Crossrail platform screen doors
23 Sep 2014



UK: Crossrail Ltd announced on September 23 that it had selected Knorr-Bremse Rail Systems (UK) Ltd as preferred bidder for contract C631, covering the supply of platform screen doors for seven underground stations. Contract value ‘is in the region of ú28m’, says Crossrail.

Knorr-Bremse is to supply full-height platform screen doors with a total length of 4 km, to be installed at the Crossrail stations at Paddington, Bond Street, Tottenham Court Road, Farringdon, Liverpool Street, Whitechapel, Canary Wharf and Woolwich. Design and development, as well as manufacture of the operating system, is to take place at the Knorr-Bremse plant in Melksham. Assembly and testing is to be carried out at the former Railcare works in Wolverton.

‘Crossrail has now awarded the last of the major railway systems contracts’, said Crossrail Programme Director Simon Wright. ‘As major construction concludes, work will get underway to fit out the new tunnels and stations’, including ‘over 40 km of track, power equipment as well as signalling, ventilation and drainage’.

Faiveley Transport and Singapore Technologies Electronics were also shortlisted for contract C631

MAYOR AND TRANSPORT FOR LONDON ANNOUNCE STEP FREE ACCESS FOR ALL LONDON CROSSRAIL STATIONS
Wednesday 1st October 2014

The Mayor of London and Transport for London (TfL) have today confirmed funding to install step free access at Seven Kings, Maryland, Manor Park and Hanwell stations ahead of Crossrail fully opening in 2019 - meaning all Crossrail stations within London will be step free.

Crossrail will dramatically improve accessibility provision along the route and bring step free access to the heart of the West End. Step free access was already committed for 33 of the 40 stations on the route.

The new funding will mean 37 are step free, including every Crossrail station in London. All stations will be staffed whenever trains are running, providing for customers the 'turn-up and-go' assistance service already in operation across the London Underground and London Overground networks.

Detailed design and planning work will now get underway, with the cost of improvements to the four stations expected to be around ú19m - provided though efficiencies and some reallocation of the operating budget. TfL will continue to work with the DfT to secure funding for step free access at the remaining three Crossrail stations; Taplow, Langley and Iver
