Laing O’Rourke awarded Crossrail Liverpool Street contract

Crossrail has announced its intention to award the main construction contracts for Liverpool Street station to Laing O’Rourke.

Crossrail said in line with European procurement rules, the contract award is subject to a ten-day standstill period.

Intensive construction for Liverpool Street Crossrail station will get underway later this year.

Andy Mitchell, Crossrail Programme Director said:

“As with the Paddington, Farringdon and Whitechapel contracts, high quality bids were received for Liverpool Street station. The main construction contract for Tottenham Court Road station will be the next to be awarded in mid-2012.”

Crossrail’s Liverpool Street station will serve the City of London and provide interchanges with London Underground’s (LU) Northern, Central, Metropolitan, Circle and Hammersmith & City Lines, connections to Stansted airport and National Rail services at Liverpool Street and Moorgate stations.
