COMPANY NEWS Crossrail Board reappoints Morgan as Chairman Mar 2012
Crossrail News Release
- Terry Morgan's reappointment as Chairman of Crossrail means he will be present to oversee the majority of tunnelling work that is due to start later this month.
- Morgan, along with non-executive board member Michael Cassidy, has been appointed by the board for a further three year term. He is the current President of the Chartered Management Institute, a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering and Institute of Electrical Engineers, and holds an MSc in Engineering Production and Management.
- Morgan, who was awarded a CBE in 2009, said: "Significant progress has been made since the start of Crossrail construction in May 2009. Work is now under way at all our central London station sites, excavation for the new Canary Wharf station is complete, and the Tunnelling and Underground Construction Academy (TUCA) in east London is now training the next generation of tunnellers and construction workers."
- He added: "The major delivery of Crossrail will shortly commence with the start of tunnelling. Over the next two and a half years, eight tunnel boring machines will construct 21km of twin-running tunnel under London. Over 3,000 people are now employed on the project and that number will increase nearly fivefold over the next two years. Tens of thousands of jobs will also be supported through the supply chain in London and in regionally-based manufacturers and suppliers."
