The project was part of the £1bn investment made to upgrade the capacity of the Tottenham Court Road Tube station, building a new station for the Crossrail railway and creating a new plazza outside Centre Point. When the expanded Tube station is integrated with the new Crossrail station, this will form a major interchange within the heart of London.
To create a larger station, the space under the road and footpath, where the former ticket hall was located, needed to be enlarged.
The proposed works space was full of sewers, ducts and pipes carrying electricity, telecommunications and water and so London Underground had to carry out a programme of utility diversions.
Thames Water own much of the drainage and sewerage system and appointed Barhale Construction, in their capacity as an AMP4 / 5 Framework contractor, to deliver the necessary works on their behalf in the capacity of principal contractor.
