First Bridge Installed at our Crossrail West Project

Our Ealing Broadway team has successfully installed the Crossrail West projects first complete bridge.

The installation took place on 21-22 May during a standard 12-hour shift, avoiding the need for a full line possession to complete the works.

Fast Facts:

276 person hours worked over the 12 hour shift
300t crane was used for the lift

The works at Ealing Broadway are part of a project across 14 sites from Acton to Maidenhead on the Great Western line to modify the stations to accommodate the operation of the new 10-car, 205m long Crossrail trains.
