The opening of the new train station building at Abbey Wood was an important milestone for The Crossrail Project as it was a step closer to the introduction of the Elizabeth line services. Abbey Wood is one of ten new Elizabeth line stations, providing passengers with a direct link through central London to new destinations.

As part of the Abbey Wood project, Barhale were required to undertake a series of phased drainage, utility and highway works at the newly constructed Crossrail Station (involving working alongside live rail lines) and within the surrounding streets due to requirements for public footpaths and access to the innovative station building.

A number of drainage runs and manholes were required to be constructed on both sides of the new station to serve the station connecting to the existing surface water and sewer drainage system.
