Crossrail's Whitechapel is not Aukett's work

With reference to Ed Dorrell's Crossrail article (News, AJ 1.7.04), in listing 'practices commissioned to work on the station designs so far', the line 'Weston Williamson with Aukett at Farringdon and Whitechapel' is wrong. Aukett have no involvement in the design of Whitechapel Station. It had been commissioned by Thameslink 2000 for the design of its station at Farringdon, but has no involvement in the design of the Crossrail station.

We would be grateful if this could be corrected as it gives the misleading impression that there is a joint designer. The correct contractual position is that Crossrail's line-wide contract is with Mott MacDonald, and all the architects named in the article are sub-consultants to Mott, and Andrea Bonetti is the architectural design manager at Mott MacDonald.
