About this event

When services start, Farringdon will be one of the busiest stations in the UK, connecting with Thameslink and the London Underground to provide links with outer London, the home counties, the City, Canary Wharf and three of London's five airports. Two new ticket halls are connected by the longest underground mined platforms on the Crossrail programme. This major transport interchange site has had to fit within a complex infrastructure network up to 25 metres below ground.

This presentation will explore some of the challenges in building this major underground facility as well as the features and design that make Farringdon unique.
