Design Preparation Services Incorporating Sprayed Concrete Linings:

Crossrail is Europe’s largest ongoing urban rail infrastructure construction project.  Once completed, it will provide a world- class railway connection between the east and west of London.

Gall Zeidler Consultants (GZ) provides expert design support for this project’s five underground stations (Liverpool Street, Whitechapel, Bond Street, Tottenham Court Road and Farringdon) and ancillary subsurface structures, including ventilation and access / egress shafts, turn-out caverns and adits. The project’s goal is to connect London’s West End and Docklands to Heathrow Airport with existing railway lines that extend east, west, and south-east from the city. A total of seven new stations will be located along the tunneled section.
