Farringdon Station, Cross rail redevelopment

Structural and Civil Consultants worked for Bourne Engineering Ltd to provide steel to steel connection design for the new western ticket hall at Farringdon Station in central London.

Farringdon station is undergoing a major redevelopment to increase capacity, improve accessibility and upgrade interchanges as part of the building of Crossrail.

The western ticket hall at the corner of Farringdon Road and Cowcross Street will integrate with the Thameslink ticket hall. As part of the development, the new western and eastern ticket halls will also be connected by 250 metre-long underground platforms.

 

Farringdon will be the only station from which passengers will be able to access all three networks – Crossrail, Thameslink and London Underground and the new station is set to become one of Britain’s busiest train stations. The scheme will also improve pedestrian areas around each ticket hall and provide better local views of St Paul’s Cathedral.
