Crossrail has announced a shortlist of four organisations that will be invited to tender for the main construction contract to redevelop Farringdon station in London, UK.

The shortlist includes four joint ventures between Balfour Beatty, Alpine BeMo, Morgan Sindall and Vinci; Costain and Skanska; Laing O’Rourke and Strabag; and BAM Nuttall, Ferrovial Agroman and Kier Construction.

The Farringdon contract is estimated at £375m ($609m).

The current contract will cover construction of eastern and western integrated ticket halls, providing access to Crossrail, London Underground and Thameslink services.

“Crossrail Programme Director Andy Mitchell said, “Farringdon is a key station on the Crossrail route and will be a major passenger hub for tube and rail services. The scale of the new Crossrail station is such that it will stretch all the way from Farringdon to Barbican. The station will connect to three tube lines and provide the strategic and only connection between Crossrail and an upgraded Thameslink network.”
