Crossrail awards Paddington New Yard contract

By Peter MacLennan

Crossrail today announced its intention to award the contract for C336 Paddington New Yard to Costain Limited.

In line with European procurement rules the contract is subject to a ten-day standstill period.

Paddington New Yard, located between the Westbourne Park Tube station and Paddington National Rail station, contains both the Royal Oak Portal and Westbourne Park Crossrail worksites.

The contract includes the construction of a new 180m long elevated bus deck which will connect to Westbourne Park Bus Garage, the relocation of an existing concrete batching plant, and preparatory works for the installation of new rail track and associated systems for Crossrail in Paddington New Yard.

Prior to Crossrail, Paddington New Yard was used for the maintenance and overnight stabling of buses. Under the Crossrail Act, Crossrail Limited is required to provide a replacement facility at Paddington New Yard.
