All Crossrail's major contracts: Full breakdown

Next December is expected to see the first phase of the Elizabeth line open to the public.

The new line will bring major benefits for the capital’s commuters, increasing capacity and accessibility across London. However, the impact Crossrail has had on the construction sector has already been massive.

Having started on site when the recession was hitting the sector hardest, the £14.8bn mega-project provided welcome opportunities for the supply chain as work dried up in other areas. In total, 67 major deals – those worth £100,000-plus – have been let since the project achieved royal assent in 2007, with nearly 30 of the industry’s biggest firms landing hundreds of millions of pounds of work. Last August saw the last major deal handed to a joint venture of Alstom, Costain and TSO for the Plumstead maintenance depot.

So who won what, where and for how much? Following a freedom of information request, CN can exclusively reveal the full picture of how Crossrail has benefited the supply chain with a full breakdown of all its major contracts.
