Skyjack work platforms help raise London's Crossrail mass transit project

 A fleet of 100 Skyjack mobile elevating work platforms are busy working on London’s ambitious Crossrail project.

Sources report the multi-billion pound scheme will result in a major new 62-mile railway system across the UK’s capital and its surrounding regions.

Crossrail project in London“The London Crossrail project is a hugely important and extensive scheme for the south east of England and we’re really pleased to be involved,” says Mark Jackson, managing director of JMS Plant Hire. 

“We’re supplying a significant number of different Skyjack machines to several main contractors because our customers want equipment that will do the jobs required, effectively, safely and reliably.” 

The Crossrail project will link 40 stations along its route including 10 new stations. The £14.8 billion (US$18.1 billion) project will connect to the London Underground network and National Rail networks and will be known as the Elizabeth Line – in honor of the Queen. Service is scheduled to commence in 2018 and will be fully operational in 2019.
