This time lapse footage shows the demolition at the site of Tottenham Court Road’s new ticket hall on Dean Street. The demolitions were conducted floor-by-floor. This method of demolition kept our site workers safe and minimised the noise and disturbance to our neighbours. It also allowed us more effectively to separate the demolished materials for re-use and recycling.
Now the site has been cleared of above-ground structures, we are focused on diverting utilities from under the worksite. Only when these are diverted can we start construction of the below-ground station box, which will be followed by the platform tunnels and passageways.
When complete, this ticket hall will provide access to the western end of the Crossrail platforms at Tottenham Court Road; the eastern end of the platforms will be reached by way of the enlarged and refurbished London Underground station.
