The Crossrail West Stations project is a design and build contract for 13 different sites stretching along the existing Great Western Railway network from Acton Main Line to Maidenhead station.
Each of the stations along the line needs to be modified to accommodate the new nine-carriage, 200-metre-long, Elizabeth line trains, which are significantly larger than the existing trains running along the route. Taylor Woodrow’s project scope on Crossrail West Stations includes extending platforms, modifying station canopies, installing footbridges and upgrading power supplies, mechanical and electrical equipment, station information and surveillance systems.
Achievements so-far include:
- Designing and constructing footbridges, extended platforms, earthing and bonding of mechanical and electrical equipment, and associated civil engineering works on all stations from West Drayton to Maidenhead
- Working more than 1,000 days lost time injury free
- Achieving a CEEQUAL Interim Design Stage rating of 87.2% (Excellent)
