Partnership bags contract for ticket halls and tunnels at Bond Street

A joint venture between Costain and Skanska has won a £35m contract to build part of Bond Street Station under the Crossrail scheme.

The deal, which is the third Crossrail contact for the joint venture, will see the partners build two station box structures and undertake construction work on the western and eastern ticket halls to provide surface access at either end to twin mined platform tunnels.

A statement from the companies said that the works at the western ticket hall will comprise the installation and construction of piling, diaphragm walling and plunge columns to the main box.

At the eastern ticket hall, the works comprise the installation and construction of piling and plunge columns to the main station box.

Work will begin immediately and is estimated for completion in early 2012.

Last year the joint venture won portal contracts at Pudding Mill Lane and Royal Oak, each worth in the region of £15m, while last month it was shortlisted to build Farringdon and Paddington Crossrail stations.
