The Crossrail contractor appointed to provide the power, utilities, track systems and other services within the central tunnel areas (known as the Systemwide works) has begun enabling works within the tunnels below the new Crossrail Bond Street station. This marks the beginning of work to install rail tracks within the central section of Crossrail.
From 12 January 2016 night time concreting will commence for the construction of the rail track, which is specially designed to minimise operational noise and vibration transmission. Concrete pumping equipment will be enclosed within an acoustic shed in order to mitigate against potential noise disruption.
Pumping concrete to construct the rail track between Bond Street and Tottenham Court Road, will take place from January to July 2016 every fourth night. The night time working has been chosen to reduce daytime traffic congestion in the vicinity of the work site.
For further details regarding the works, please see the information sheet below:
The new south plaza entrance to the station is now open in what is a major milestone for the stations upgrade.
The 15 metre tall glass entrance to Tottenham Court Road has also been greeted by the announcement that Central Line trains will now be stopping at the station again from Monday 7 December.
These works are part of TFL’s £500 million upgrade to the station and will be fully completed in 2016. Please follow this link to find out more about the new entrance and details of what the station will feature in the future: Tottenham Court Road Upgrade
