Construction firms such as Balfour Beatty are among those that will be assessing their negotiation strategies in a bid to get Crossrail's Farringdon station contract.

Crossrail - which a joint venture between Transport for London and the Department for Transport - recently announced that it plans to award the contracts for all London's central stations by the end of the year.

The firm's programme director Andy Mitchell estimated the combined value of the projects at 1.5 billion.

He asserted that Farringdon will be a major transport hub for those using the London Underground, adding that it is a key point on the Crossrail route.

"In construction terms, Farringdon is a hugely important station as it is the meeting point of the two major tunnelling drives," he commented.

According to Mr Mitchell, more than 140 trains will go through the Farringdon interchange each hour while 140,000 passengers are expected to pass through daily.
