  • Abstract

    This paper focuses on the environmental management practices that were employed during delivery of the central tunnelled section of Crossrail. The aim was to promote and achieve a high level of environmental performance during construction, which in turn would set a new benchmark for environmental performance when delivering major transport infrastructure.
