Servest Security, part of the Servest Group, has been chosen by the joint venture ATC (Alstom, TSO and Costain) as the guarding security provider for the final system-wide Crossrail project.
The four-year contract will see Servest Security deliver manned guarding and mobile patrol services to the second phase of this high-profile project.
The project will see joint venture, ATC, fitting out the necessary track and power equipment within the 21 kilometres of twin tunnels that stretch under the city of London. The work will be carried out within the tunnel itself and will span the route covering Royal Oak, Pudding Mill Lane and Plumstead Portals. Upon the completion of this route, the Crossrail trains will be operating from 2018.
Servest Security has considerable experience protecting Crossrail projects, having worked with the project for several years. Servest has designed a bespoke security package for the ever-evolving and complex needs of the Crossrail project.
Crossrail is currently the largest construction project in Europe, and the biggest infrastructure project ever undertaken in the UK.
The aim is to improve travel across London by reducing journey times, easing congestion and offering better connections. Set to open in 2018, Crossrail will increase the rail network and support significant regeneration.
“We are delighted to be working on this project and look forward to working with ATC over the next four years,” said Michael Lamoureaux, Managing Director of Servest Security. “This project further cements Servest Security’s partnership with Crossrail as the main security supplier across London.”
