Liverpool Street Station Platform Extension GRIP 5-8 Design & Build

Liverpool Street Station Platform Extension GRIP 5-8 Design & Build

13 November 2020


Liverpool Street Station is one of London’s busiest train stations. The key project deliverable is to complete the platform extensions and associated works by 31st May 2021 to ensure our client can fully introduce and operate their new rolling stock.

Our client, MTR Corporation Limited, required a contractor to design and build extensions to platforms 16 and 17 and to take platform 18 out of use as an operational platform at London’s Liverpool Street Station to increase capacity for their new 205m Full-Length Units (FLU) trains.

This involves the management and interface of multiple contractors to deliver specialist activities such as modular platform extensions, slab track installation, roof-mounted OLE and multidisciplinary design.

Managing Director of Enable Infrastructure (formerly known as BCM Construction) Shane O’Halloran had this to say on the project: “This is a complex multi-disciplinary project and is one of the most challenging that we have been involved in. The project team have developed key client and subcontractor relationships and we are delivering a quality product for our valued client, MTR Corporation Limited.”
