The presentation explored the overall Crossrail scheme from the integrated design to the construction phase and included several videos and a 4D modelling of the time-lapse of delivery.

Shaun Cartledge, CRE, track construction, said: "The presentation at the RCEA was a great opportunity to showcase the excellent work that has been carried out by the project at Shenfield to a wider audience of industry experts.

"We were able to champion the excellent collaborative approach taken between contractor, design team and client that enabled us to commission the remodelled Shenfield layout and new platform 6 at the end of the blockade in week 5.

"We also highlighted how the project used the latest technologies to assist with the design and planning of the works, to identify any clashes and constraints at the planning stage rather than when they are encountered on site".
