TfL confirm contractor for Bakerloo line link
06 January 2015

London Underground (LU) has today announced its intention to award the contract to design and build the Paddington link tunnel, which will link the new Crossrail station and the Bakerloo line platforms, to Costain Skanska Joint Venture.

The contract to build the Paddington link tunnel is worth approximately £40m and follows an innovative procurement process set by LU, which was successfully used on the Bank Station Upgrade contract signed in 2013.

The procurement process, known as the Innovative Contractor Engagement (ICE) model, assesses the bids made by contractors for the value that their proposal adds to the project.

The winning bid by Costain Skanska Joint Venture will enhance the value of the Bakerloo line link by 25%, mainly through reducing passenger journey times compared with initial designs, and it will help to reduce the level of disruption caused to customers while the link is built

Daniel Buren artwork at the entrance:













I have a feeling beyond this door will eventually link to Crossrail 2.



This will eventually go beyond to Crossrail 1.

So so so much better than that cramped entrance that was a mess to get in and out of.

Upcoming Crossrail milestones, taken from TfL Press release:

Quote:
http://www.tfl.gov.uk/info-for/media...grate-with-tfl
  • Major tunnelling for Crossrail to complete in spring 2015 when tunnelling machines Elizabeth and Victoria reach Farringdon.
  • Network Rail to continue major surface works on the existing rail network including construction of a landmark new station at Abbey Wood. Major station improvements in outer London will get underway; a number of stations will be completely rebuilt, providing passengers with brighter, more spacious ticket halls.
  • The fit out of Crossrail's tunnels will begin in early 2015. New track will be laid as well as overhead conductor bar to power the trains, lighting, signalling, ventilation and everything else that is required to run Crossrail's new trains beneath the streets of London.
  • As part of the UK's largest archaeology project, Crossrail will excavate the former Bedlam burial ground in Liverpool Street from March 2015 to enable construction of the Broadgate ticket hall. The dig will exhume thousands of bodies and artefacts dating from Roman times through to the 18th Century.
  • The Wallasea Island nature reserve in Essex, constructed using Crossrail excavated material, will be flooded with sea water in summer 2015, creating a new wetlands habitat for bird and marine life.
  • Joint venture partners will be sought during 2015 for major above station property developments at Paddington, Tottenham Court Road West, Fisher Street, Farringdon East and Woolwich.
  • Announcement of commissions for the Crossrail Art Programme, which will see large-scale permanent art-work put in place at seven central London sites.
  • Construction of the major new Crossrail depot at Old Oak Common is underway and will continue throughout 2015.
  • From 31 May 2015, Transport for London will begin operating the existing rolling stock between Shenfield and Liverpool Street. There will be staff at every station at all times that trains are running, better accessibility provision, full integration with TfL customer information and with TfL fares and ticketing, including cheaper journeys in many cases using Oyster or contactless pay as you go. TfL will also put in place a phased programme of deep cleaning and painting the stations and introducing help points, CCTV, gate lines and better lighting and customer information.
  • Ahead of the new Crossrail trains arriving on the Shenfield to Liverpool Street services in 2017, TfL will clean up the existing trains and refresh them inside and out within six months of transfer

That ticket hall installation is seriously cool. Here's a link to the relevant story on Design Week.

Hoping this doesn't sound silly but will the Crossrail section of Shenfield to London Liverpool Street) be up and running this year or early next? Cause I know London Overground is meant to take over several Greater Anglia routes from Abellio soon?

Both the 'TfL Rail'* and Overground takeovers are at the same time - May 1

*they don't want unimproved service labelled as Crossrail.

TfL Rail? Now that's interesting. So they will change the name to Crossrail once all stations are complete and the new trains come in.

Thanks.

Once services start running underground, I believe.

And I was wrong earlier - it's the 31st of May, not the 1st, that the Greater Anglian TfL handover is.

Yeah I just say that on one of their PDF. Plus they are hoping for the remaining routes from Liverpool Street to Stansted Airport, to be part of Crossrail 2. Also Stratford to Angel Road, via Tottenham Hale and new Lea Bridge station, will be rebranded as 'STAR', until Crossrail 2 is up and running, maybe?

Overall TfL are really looking towards taking over the 'quiet' local community stations which is a blessing. The old Silverlink trains in my area, before Overground took over, were just awful.
