Fereday Pollard submits Abbey Wood Crossrail plans

  • Comment

Infrastructure specialist Fereday Pollard has submitted plans for a new Crossrail terminus at Abbey Wood in south east London

Upgrading an existing station on the North Kent Line, the scheme will be the final stop on the £15.9 billion railway’s southern spur.

Expected to open in 2017, the enlarged station will be built above the existing railway and two new tracks built for Crossrail.

Station proposals submitted to the London Borough of Bexley and the Royal Borough of Greenwich include a new concourse, forecourt, island platforms and passenger elevators.

The existing Abbey Wood station will be demolished and replaced by a temporary station by summer 2014, which will be located in the current station car park.

In addition, two tracks for Crossrail services will be installed next to the existing North Kent lines and work will be carried out to raise and lengthen a number of bridges along the track so they can accommodate the overhead electric wires that will be used by Crossrail trains.

Crossrail Chief Executive Andrew Wolstenholme said: ‘Crossrail will help to transform the local area, dramatically improving transport links, reducing congestion on existing rail services, providing a boost to the local economy and supporting wider regeneration in southeast London.’

When complete, Crossrail will add up to 12 trains an hour from Abbey Wood to central London.
