Mott MacDonald appointed engineering consultant for Crossrail tunnels fit-out

Mott MacDonald has been appointed engineering consultant by the Alstom, TSO and Costain (ATC) joint venture for the fit-out of the new Crossrail tunnels. The JV has won the last major construction contract to be awarded by Crossrail, which will see the commissioning of track and rail systems and turn 21km of twin-bore tunnel currently being constructed under the streets of London into an operational railway.

This phase of construction includes installation of 42km of track and rigid overhead electric conductors which will power the trains. 48 ventilation fans, 40km of walkways, 66 drainage pumps, 40km of fire mains and lighting along the entire length will also be included.

Mott MacDonald will support the ATC JV by providing detailed design of all the systems – tunnel ventilation, mechanical and electrical systems – and the tunnel walkway. The consultancy will also provide environmental services and systems assurance as part of an integrated team.

Neil Henderson, Mott MacDonald’s project director commented: “We’re delighted to be part of the ATC team and continue our long involvement with Europe’s largest infrastructure project and one of the biggest and most complex rail projects in the world. The project will benefit both London and the UK’s economy as a whole.”

Mike Casebourne, project director for the ATC JV, said: “We’re happy to have Mott MacDonald as part of our team responsible for converting Crossrail’s tunnels into an operational railway.”
