Crossrail is the largest construction and civil engineering project in Europe. There are a large number and variety of opportunities for suppliers of all sizes to get involved and play a part in creating this new world-class railway.
Our website aims to provide companies with the basic information needed to understand, plan for, and find Crossrail business opportunities.
We are working with some of the biggest names in UK construction as well as hundreds of Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs), who make up their supply chains, from across the country.
Crossrail has so far awarded contracts to a value of around £5bn – this includes the major tunnelling contracts and main construction contracts for Paddington, Tottenham Court Road, Farringdon, Liverpool Street, Whitechapel and Custom House stations.
Our tunnels and stations are being delivered by UK construction companies working in partnership with EU companies to deliver the UK’s biggest construction project since the Jubilee Line Extension and Channel Tunnel Rail Link.
Thousands of people will be employed in building Crossrail at the height of construction in 2013-15. Further jobs will be supported through the supply chain in London and in regionally-based manufacturers and suppliers.
