VIDEO: Crossrail surface work one-third complete

Crossrail says surface section work is now one-third complete.

Work to build the £14.8 billion scheme has so far used nine million hours worked by Network Rail to upgrade its existing national network for Crossrail in London, Berkshire and Essex. This involves £2.3bn worth of work including the installation of the Stockley flyover in Hillingdon, work on a new rail dive under at Acton, which will be completed in 2015, the opening of a temporary station at Abbey Wood to allow the construction of a new ‘landmark’ two-storey station, the demolition and replacement of four bridges in west London and Slough and piling work between Hillingdon and Maidenhead ahead of the installation of overhead electric wires for Crossrail and extensive track works across the route and preparations for the installation of two new tracks to link Abbey Wood to the Crossrail tunnels at Plumstead.
