Current works at Tottenham Court Road Station

Crossrail is working alongside TfL on a £1bn transformation of Tottenham Court Road Station, the biggest transport investment in the West End for decades.

Alongside the upgrade of the existing tube station, Crossrail is building a new station the length of three football pitches four storeys underground.  A new street level ticket hall will be constructed at Dean Street, with the station box continuing five levels below ground at a depth of around 25m, providing access to the new Crossrail platforms.

The Gostlett Yard box is an adjoining structure to the London Underground ticket hall upgrade that will allow passengers to access Crossrail from the easter end of the station. Crossrail's Contractor Laing O'Rourke will be starting work on the Goslett Yard site from April 2015 to begin the next phase of works to fit out the box and construct the ventilation structure.

Description of work:

Laing O’Rourke would like to take this opportunity to advise you of future works at the Tottenham Court Road sites. Up until Christmas, the focus of works at the Western Ticket Hall, above ground, will be on the installation of utilities. This work will involve significant periods of breaking-out the ground and the use of a vacuum excavator of up to 3 days per week. The vacuum excavator, will be deployed to excavate around exposed services. Whilst this method of excavation is fairly loud, it avoids the impacts that would otherwise be caused by a pneumatic hammer. It also minimises the risk of damaging the utility services or causing injury to the construction staff. This utility installation work will be undertaken on Great Chapel Street and Dean Street. These installations are essential works to complete the project. Mitigation measures such as acoustic shielding and quiet periods will be incorporated into the programme, to minimise disruption to our neighbours.
