Broadgate - at the heart of crossrail
In early 2010, works begain on the construction of Crossrail's Liverpool Street Station.
New high-frequency trains will have capacity for more than 1,500 passengers
Crossrail, which is due to open in 2017, will provide new, high-frequency, convenient and accessible rail links for London and the South East. It will make travelling to Broadgate easier and quicker, as well as reducing crowding on the transport network.
We are working with Crossrail and our occupiers, such as UBS, to manage the impacts of this huge civil engineering project on businesses and people based at Broadgate. Two new ticket halls at Moorgate and in Liverpool Street and new underground platforms will be constructed for Crossrail services beginning in 2017. During construction, a temporary worksite will be located in Finsbury Circus Gardens.
In 2011, a temporary shaft will be sunk at the southern end of the Crossrail worksite for the underground construction of the platform tunnels and cross-passages. This work will continue until 2014 when the tunnel boring machines arrive. In 2016, the restoration programme will begin, before Crossrail Liverpool Street opens in 2017.
British Land’s efforts helped to ensure that an additional ticket hall was agreed for Liverpool Street Station, benefiting the 35,000 people who will be working in the Broadgate area, as well as those based in the surrounding areas of the City.
