The renamed East London Railway was part of Transport for London’s Five Year Investment Program, the East London Line is being extended in two phases and AECOM became involved in 2010 with the Program Cost Consultancy experts delivering cost management services for this project. As lead designer with the Balfour Beatty/Carillion Joint Venture, AECOM produced the detailed construction design for new stations, buildings, civils and structure works including architecture, landscaping, geotechnics, electrical and mechanical services.

The project extends the line in both north and south directions to connect it with existing rail services. It played a major role in transporting people to and from the 2012 London Olympic & Paralympic Games, providing a stimulus for regeneration initiatives throughout many of London’s boroughs
