Crossrail Ventilation Shafts & Portals
With a challenging mix of architecture, landscape and civil engineering, we provided architectural planning stage inputs in the design of the structures and landscape serving the portals, ventilation and intervention shafts for the underground section of Crossrail. The structures are located in environmentally sensitive areas and designed and positioned in strict compliance with the operational requirements of the railway.
Works at the Eastern Portal were combined with the scheme design for the new Crossrail station at Custom House. The station consists of an island platform with ticket hall above served by Crossrail with interchange to the adjacent DLR station and 24 hour access to Excel Centre and Silvertown.
