“Crossrail is now quickly advancing towards the start of intensive construction.
“All the major tunnelling contracts have been awarded, the first of the main construction contracts for the central London stations has been let, work is underway to manufacture the tunnel boring machines and the Tunnelling and Underground Construction Academy is nearing completion.
“Now is therefore the right time to further strengthen the Crossrail Board.
“I’m delighted that Terry Hill will be joining the Board. Terry has significant construction industry experience having led one of the UK’s leading engineering companies and will bring invaluable expertise in major transport infrastructure delivery.”
