Transport secretary Patrick McLoughlin and Crossrail chief executive Andrew Wolstenholme have urged Sheffield City Region firms to make the most of business opportunities arising from London’s Crossrail project. The duo were speaking at Laing O’Rourke’s £100 million plant at Steetley, near Worksop, which is constructing major sections of Crossrail’s new Custom House station before transporting them more than 130 miles to East London where they will be assembled on site.

Crossrail and its supply chain is expected to generate at least 75,000 business opportunities and support the equivalent of 55,000 fulltime jobs right around the UK. Three out of five businesses currently winning work on the project are based outside London and 58 per cent are SMEs.
