A consortium including Mott MacDonald, Temple, ERM and WSP (referred to as MTEW) has been appointed by Transport for London (TfL) to provide environmental and sustainability services for Crossrail 2. The consortium will provide input to the developing project plans and the funding case.

Crossrail 2 will play a vital role in supporting London’s growth adding 10 per cent more rail capacity. It will create a new high frequency, high capacity rail line with shorter journey times between south-west and north east London and will also serve some destinations in Surrey and Hertfordshire using the existing National Rail network. Initial proposals have been consulted on publicly and the Department for Transport is currently consulting on safeguarding along the route.

MTEW will develop a robust sustainability and environmental framework for the scheme and work with the other appointed consultants to embed consideration of these aspects in the development and selection of options.  The consortium will also work closely with stakeholders to produce a report on environmental aspects setting out the initial findings of the work and the further environmental assessment work required in the subsequent development of the scheme.

Jane Barron, MTEW project director said: “We’re looking forward working closely with TfL to deliver the next stage of the project. The four companies in the consortium have successfully worked together on other major rail infrastructure projects in the UK and will use this vast experience and knowledge to realise TfL’s infrastructure ambitions.”
