The next phase of enabling works will start later this year.
Crossrail engineering director Dr David Anderson said: вЂњThe delivery of Crossrail is moving ahead at speed. Following the appointment of the programme partner and selection of the project delivery partner we are now able to confirm which companies have been short-listed to tender for the next phase of enabling works contracts required across the Crossrail route.
вЂњWe are looking forward to working closely with these selected companies to ensure that Crossrail will be fully prepared to commence main construction of the railway next year.вЂќ
