Constructing Paddington Crossrail station beneath Eastbourne Terrace

Constructing Paddington Crossrail station beneath Eastbourne Terrace

The Crossrail Paddington Station is being built directly below Departures Road and Eastbourne Terrace and will offer a superior travelling experience with smoother interchanges and improved accessibility, easing congestion and providing space for future growth in passenger numbers.

The station will take the form of an underground box measuring 260m long, 25m wide and 23m deep, and located directly under Departures Road and Eastbourne Terrace.

Construction of the station started in October 2011 and is due be completed during 2017.

Description of work:

The overnight closures (10pm – 5am) of Eastbourne Terrace to facilitate Brickslip Panel installation should be completed by the end of shift at 05:00 on Thursday 24 November if not before. We would now like to give you further notification of the next confirmed dates Eastbourne Terrace is required to be road to traffic. The road closures are required to allow a mobile crane to be positioned on the carriageway of Eastbourne Terrace in order to lift in the sections that make up the 15 escalators that will be part of the new station. The escalators will be delivered in sections and pieced together on site each weekend from the weekend of Saturday 19 November. The mobile crane will need to take the weight of the escalator sections as they are manoeuvred carefully onto the site. The crane will be idle at various times as the sections are meticulously pieced together by the team before they are lowered into the station box. The installation plan will start with the escalators to be placed on the platform levels (furthest point) and then the following escalators will be installed in sequence as the team works their way out of the station box. The table below shows the dates of the closures, Eastbourne Terrace will be re-opened as soon as it is safe to do so. Pedestrian access to the footway and properties along Eastbourne Terrace will be maintained at all times.
