Factory to build railway station

Have your say

A FACTORY near Worksop is to build sections of a new London Crossrail station.

Major structural components for the station at Custom House will be made at Laing O’Rourke’s plant on Explore Industrial Park in Steetley. Sections will be transported from the factory, which employs 364 people, to East London and re-assembled.

A spokesman for Laing O’Rourke said: “This process saves time and money through doing as much of the construction work as possible in the controlled conditions of the factory.”
