The ESD MPhil Students were given the opportunity to visit Crossrail on Tuesday 22nd of March  2016. Crossrail is a major new cross-London railway aiming to improve travel across the city, ease congestion, and provide better connections. The visit took place at the under-construction station at Bond Street, which is expected to increase daily passenger numbers from 155,000 to 220,000, and see 24 trains per hour in each direction, once it opens to the public in 2018. The ESD MPhil students were greeted onsite by three  Crossrail project engineers who introduced them to the project scope and objectives, in addition to sharing their experiences and challenges of working on a large infrastructure project. After a presentation and an informative Q&A session, the students were given a safety brief and a personalized guided tour of the Bond Street station site. The visit provided exclusive insight into the world of sustainability in large infrastructure projects.
