Moving the industry forward

The Elizabeth line has advanced industry thinking and practice, with our experts at the forefront of driving change in tunnelling, shaft construction, platform design, ventilation, systems integration and more.

Skills and experience gained are already benefiting other projects in UK and internationally, in Sydney, Vancouver and San Jose.

Throughout our involvement with the project, our engineers have authored in-depth technical papers to further the knowledge and understanding of specific areas of a megaproject. These are published on Crossrail’s Learning Legacy website, a collation and dissemination of good practice, lessons learned, and innovation aimed at raising industry standards.
