Four shortlisted for £35m Custom House Crossrail station

Four contractors have been shortlisted for the chance to build the £35 million Custom House Crossrail station.

Laing O’Rourke, Hochtief,  Costain and Geoffrey Osborne saw off rivals from a long list of companies that prequalified for the job.

A contract award is due later this year and work will commence in early 2013.

The station is due to be completed by 2018.

Custom House station in East London is the only above ground station within Crossrail’s central section.

Improving the links between central London and the ExCeL Exhibition Centre, passengers will be able to reach Canary Wharf in four minutes and Bond Street in 17,

Heathrow Airport will be less than 45 minutes away. 

The new Crossrail station will be built on the site of the former North London Line station which closed to passengers in December 2006.

The new station will include a new ticket hall, interchange with Docklands Light Railway  and step-free access between the street and Crossrail platforms.
