Jacobs to perform work for Crossrail project

UK rail-infrastructure operator Network Rail has awarded industrial maintenance, fabrication and construction-technology company Jacobs Engineering the contract to progress the development of a major rail-infrastructure project at Stockley Flyover in west London.

The flyover is located in the Heathrow Airport Junction area, servicing trains to and from Heathrow, as well as along the Great Western main line.

Jacobs will be responsible for the design element of the work to build a new flyover near the existing layout to provide conflict-free crossing of the main line.
