Crossrail C512 Whitechapel

The new improved design for Whitechapel Station which forms part of Crossrail includes major improvements at the station and other upgrades which will greatly benefit passengers and local residents.

As part of the upgrade works, Kilnbridge were appointed by BBMV JV to dismantle a number of significant bridge structures which span the station to enable the construction of the new concourse and access structures.

Our scope of works is phased over a three year period and involves the controlled dismantling of 14 separate structures, 7 of which are bridging structures.

Kilnbridge completed the removal of London Overground Bridge Structure D124 during a 52 hour possession. This entailed erecting a temporary crash deck beneath the composite bridge deck which was then cut in to 9.50t sections utilising floor and track sawing techniques. The main supporting steel girders, weighing 45t, carrying the composite bridge deck were cut into 3 sections using diamond wire sawing techniques.
