Crossrail invites tenders for Liverpool St and Whitechapel tunnels

Crossrail is inviting tenders for the construction of the access shafts and station tunnels in connection with the construction of new stations at Liverpool and Whitechapel.

The work includes the construction of platform, concourse, cross passage and escalator tunnels using sprayed concrete lining techniques, as well as the construction of temporary access shafts.

The project will also involve the transportation of all excavated materials from the works by road to transfer stations on the Thames.

It is set to last around 47 months.

The time limit for receipt of tenders or requests to participate is 15 December.
