Crossrail experts to advise Israel on new Tel Aviv metro

Engineers from the Crossrail project in London are to advise Israeli officials on the new Tel Aviv metro.

Transportation Secretary Grant Shapps flew to Israel on Wednesday, where he will meet officials in Tel Aviv and also sign a “memorandum of understanding” with the Transportation Ministry.

Shapps will say: “Today’s partnership reinforces our commitment to a global Britain, helping our leading rail industry to extend its expertise to supervised friends while opening up new business opportunities to boost the UK economy. ”

He will also say it is “a fantastic opportunity for our British engineers and advisers to share their ingenuity with Israel as they undertake their biggest rail project ever.”

Matthew Salter, the UK’s commercial attaché to Israel said The temperature“It is very gratifying to see a British company win such an important advisory role in Israel.

“We are confident that Crossrail International will help in many aspects of the complex metro project through all the different challenges it will face…making a significant difference in improving the lives of Israeli citizens.”

Engineers from Crossrail International will be confirmed to provide consultancy services for a new £33billion three-line metro with 90 miles of track and 109 stations.

The Department for Transport said the company, which it owns, will provide advice on design and environmentalism.

Crossrail was responsible for the new Elizabeth Line in London, which opened in May after a long three-year delay and a massive budget increase.

The government hopes the Tel Aviv project will boost Britain’s image as an engineering force.
