The Green Lane (Great Western Road) Project on behalf of BFK/Crossrail involved the construction of 6 shafts (by underpinning method) and nearly 600m of pipe jacking.

The scheme was required as the existing sewer going under Network Rails Great Western Rail lines and London Underground would have clashed with the new Crossrail line. As a result, the existing sewer was abandoned and replaced with a new 1.2m pipe at a lower level. As part of the works, Barhale were responsible for the detailed design of the scheme involving consultation with Thames Water, Network Rail and London Underground. Initial works involved the location and diversion of all services at the shaft locations including Gas, Water, Electrical & Fibre Optics.
