Farringdon Elizabeth line station comprises two platform tunnels, each 245m long, between new ticket halls over 300m apart. Each ticket hall has been designed to accommodate future oversite developments.
This paper discusses the structural engineering challenges encountered during design and construction of the two ticket halls on constrained sites surrounded by existing transport infrastructure, utilities and historic buildings.
All the articles from the July 2018 issue - a special issue on 'Structural engineering for the Elizabeth line'.
Congratulations to all the winners of the Institution’s People and Papers Awards 2018, which were presented at a luncheon held at Church House in Westminster, London on Thursday 7 June. The Awards recognise outstanding contributions to structural engineering and to Institution life, through innovative educational initiatives, papers published in The Structural Engineer and Structures , lectures, regional group activity, and much more. They cover the whole range of Institution life, from outstanding young professionals to those recognised for a lifetime of achievement and service.
I am pleased to have been asked to contribute a foreword to this timely publication. As work on the Crossrail programme comes to a conclusion and we pass the baton of largest infrastructure project in Europe to High Speed 2, this is a valuable collection of insights into the design and construction process for the structural elements of the programme. Crossrail has always been committed to sharing lessons learned, embodied most effectively in our Learning Legacy initiative, through which we have published many examples of insight and good practice on a dedicated website.
