A joint venture between Costain and Skanska to build Crossrail’s Bond Street station is up and running. This is the last of the main construction contracts for the new line’s central section stations.
Bond Street Crossrail station will be directly connected to the neighbouring Tube station allowing passengers to interchange between Crossrail and London Underground services. When completed the £300million redevelopment will transform the station delivering:
- A dramatic increase in station capacity ahead of the completion of Crossrail;
- A new entrance and ticket hall north of Oxford Street to increase capacity and provide step-free access to both the Central and Jubilee lines;
- New escalators and an additional access route to the Jubilee line to reduce congestion; An improved interchange between Central and Jubilee lines;
- Step-free access to the new Crossrail station;
- and Improved pedestrian areas around the station with new seating and lighting;
More than 155,000 passengers currently use Bond Street Tube station every day, a figure that’s expected to rise to over 225,000 with the arrival of Crossrail in 2017.
The Mosaic competency management system has been chosen on this JV project to provide an on-line ‘Network Passport’ platform to deliver Project Inductions and SkillCheck. The project lead also proposes to use the Mosaic Occupational Health module and Mosaic Briefing Manager. Recording of toolbox talks is seen by the management team as a crucial means of delivering and reinforcing safety messages across the site.
