Crossrail’s Liverpool Street station will serve the City of London and provide interchanges with London Underground’s Northern, Central, Metropolitan, Circle and Hammersmith & City Lines, connections to Stansted airport and National Rail services at Liverpool Street and Moorgate stations.
It will be located below London Underground’s (LU) existing Liverpool Street and Moorgate stations with both stations providing access to the Crossrail station.
At the eastern end of the Crossrail station, a new Crossrail ticket hall will be constructed beneath Liverpool Street close to the Broadgate development. The new ticket hall will provide step-free access from street level to the new Crossrail platforms. Nearby, a 40m-deep box structure will be located on Blomfield Street to accommodate ventilation, electrical, mechanical and systems equipment.
At the western end, a further new ticket hall will be built by developing the existing Moorgate station ticket hall. The development in which this is housed also contains a 33m-deep draught relief shaft, which has already been built in its lower basement to aid the Crossrail development.
A section of Finsbury Circus has been temporarily acquired during the construction of Crossrail’s Liverpool Street station for two purposes; first, to enable construction of the platform tunnels via a temporary construction shaft and second, to accommodate construction facilities including site offices. Following completion of the works, Finsbury Circus will be restored to its original condition.
