Tunnelling Journal features PM complexities at Bank
The latest edition of Tunnelling Journal (Dec 18/Jan 19), features an update on the progress at London Underground’s (LU) Bank Station Capacity Upgrade.
The tunnelling phase is nearing completion and is part of a multi-million project to upgrade one of the busiest stations on the network. The works will create new rail and passenger tunnels, a new ticket hall, new access points and step-free options to improve capacity and faster interchange between the six underground lines served by Bank/Monument.
Parts of the station are over 100 years old with 65 buildings within the works settlement zone including Grade I and Grade II listed buildings, which has required exceptional engineering and project management capabilities.
CPC’s Andy Swift has acted as LU’s Programme Manager since 2013, and talks about how the Innovative Contractor Engagement procurement route has impacted on risk management, interfaces with the operational railway and the ongoing client contractor relationship.
