“When the incident occurred, work was taking place to build a new crossover tunnel between two train tunnels that have already been constructed by Crossrail’s boring machines.
The worker was spraying concrete onto the excavated ground when a piece of concrete from the ceiling of the tunnel fell and hit him.
Crossrail has suspended all work at Fisher Street and associated works across the project.
Safety is our number one priority and Crossrail sets the most stringent safety requirements in the industry.
Despite this terrible incident, Crossrail’s accident rate is below the industry average.”
