Crossrail Farringdon Station progress update, Spring 2012

By Tom Lawson

Farringdon Station is right at the heart of the Crossrail route.  Project Manager Tim Grimshaw explains the construction progress that has been made at Crossrail's Farringdon worksites, where our contractors are undertaking advanced works at each of the two ticket hall sites.

Demolitions works have been completed at the east ticket hall site, utilities have been diverted and protected and the advanced works are well underway.

When complete, it is planned that over 140 trains per hour will flow through the Farringdon interchange when it becomes a link between Thameslink, Crossrail and London Underground services.

Farringdon will be the only station from which passengers will be able to access all three networks. It will become one of Britain's busiest train stations, and will be a key link in bringing passengers from outer London to the business hubs in the City and Canary Wharf.
