Crossrail Hands Over Farrington Elizabeth Line Station to TFL
Crossrail has handed over the Farringdon Elizabeth line station, built by the BAM, Ferrovial, Kier joint venture Team BFK, to Transport for London, making it the first central London station to reach handover.
This news follows a number of firsts for the BFK project team. Farringdon was the first central London project team to reach Stage Completion 3 and T-12 status, which means it was 12 weeks away from being handed over to the infrastructure manager, Transport for London. It was also the first and only Elizabeth line station to achieve the BREEAM excellent accreditation in its post-construction review. It achieved this for its dedication to the environment and social sustainability through the design and construction stages.
When the Elizabeth line opens, Farringdon station will be one of the busiest in the UK, connecting with Thameslink and the London Underground.
