is a major new 73-mile long railway under construction in South East
England, linking Berkshire and Buckinghamshire, via Greater London, to
Essex and Kent. It represents Europe's largest construction project,
employing up to 14,000 workers either directly or indirectly, and is
currently planned to open in 2018, at which point 10-car trains will run
at frequencies of up to 24 trains per hour in each direction through
the central tunnel section. Another proposed Crossrail route would be
the Chelsea–Hackney line based on new main-line gauge east-west tunnels
from Paddington in the west to beyond Whitechapel in the east.
Steelway have worked a number of Crossrail
projects and have various projects in the pipelines. Check back here for
updates on these projects when they emerge.
