Mott MacDonald looks forward to next stage of the East London Line

Mott MacDonald is providing technical and commercial services to London Rail, part of TfL, the line owner and concession manager, for the next phases of the £1 billion East London Line extension. Mott MacDonald was involved in the preliminary designer, as technical advisor and independent certifier of works for the first section of the extension which opened on 27 April, two months early and on budget.

The next phases of the East London Line extension will take the line north to Highbury & Islington, due for completion in spring 2011, and south west to Clapham Junction, completing the London orbital rail network and opening in 2012.

The East London Line provides Londoners with fast and reliable cross-river rail journeys in a fleet of 20 new air-conditioned trains, enabling 100,000 passenger journeys a day. As part of the project, 14 stations are being refurbished with a further four new stations being built.

The East London Line currently runs from Dalston Junction in the north via the City and Docklands to New Cross, Crystal Palace and West Croydon in the south.

Mott MacDonald’s construction economics business Franklin+Andrews has been TfL’s commercial advisor since 2004, providing estimating and procurement support for the infrastructure and rolling stock, project control and post contract commercial advice.

London mayor Boris Johnson hailed the successful delivery of the project, which will play a key role in getting competitors and spectators to the Olympic Games 2012. The line will also support regeneration of some of London’s poorest boroughs.

Mott MacDonald's commissioning manager, Martijn Donders said: “We are proud to have been part of the first phase of the East London Line extension and are delighted to continue our role in this transformational project which will dramatically improve mobility in this area of London. Mott MacDonald has a wealth of experience in the rail sector, dating back more than a hundred years.”
