BBMV, an integrated London-based joint venture comprising Balfour Beatty, ALPINE BeMo Tunnelling, Morgan Sindall and VINCI Construction, announces today it has been awarded the £235 million Whitechapel and Liverpool Street Station Tunnels contract, as part of the Crossrail project.

Connecting the City and Canary Wharf, the West End and Heathrow Airport to commuter areas east and west of London, Crossrail is a major new rail link project designed to provide a world-class, affordable railway with high frequency, convenient and accessible services across the capital.

The Whitechapel and Liverpool Street Station Tunnels contract covers the construction of all station tunnels and associated works and forms an integral part of the wider project.

All four businesses in the BBMV joint venture have a solid record of delivering major infrastructure schemes in London and throughout the world and will jointly provide the full range of skills, resources and technical expertise required for this complex project.

John Edwards, BBMV’s bid director, said: “We are delighted to be awarded a prestigious Crossrail project.  BBMV represents the best in the construction industry.  This contract requires a team possessing not only the technical and resource capability, but also a comprehensive understanding of both the local issues and the requirements of the key stakeholders involved.”
