2018 November London Lecture

Thursday 15 November 2018 from 6:00 PM

Lecture by Chris Sexton (1974), Technical Director at Crossrail on "Crossrail - London's Newest Railway"

In 2019 the Crossrail programme will open a new railway, the Elizabeth line, for London and the South East, running from Reading and Heathrow in the west, through 42km of new tunnels under London to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east. The project is building 10 new stations and upgrading 30 more. The £14.8 billion Crossrail project is currently Europe’s largest infrastructure project. Construction began in 2009.

Chris Sexton is Crossrail’s Technical Director and a member of the Crossrail Board, accountable for engineering, assurance, systems integration, information, sustainability, quality and assurance. He was President of the Chartered Quality Institute from 2014 to 2017.  Chris joined Crossrail in 2010 from Laing O'Rourke where he was Head of Engineering for the European business.

Chris will talk about the Crossrail story from design to commissioning, some of the challenges facing the construction and rail industries today and how someone who read PPE at Keble ended up as Technical Director of a railway!
