Abbey Wood



Network Rail constructed a new station at Abbey Wood to support the new Crossrail Elizabeth Line railway. The project and principal contractor were demobilised in 2018, and there was significant documentation outstanding that was needed to close out the project’s obligation to produce a Health & Safety File and to support transfer to Rail for London Infrastructure (RFLI) as the Station owner and maintainer.
