With the Crossrail railway line in Great Britain, one of the biggest infrastructure projects of Europe is in progress. The construction costs for the 118‑kilometre railway line amount to about €21 billion. It runs from Reading in Berkshire in the West to Shenfield in Essex in the East crossing through the centre of London.

A branch line runs under the Thames to Woolwich and ends at the recently completed Abbey Wood Station. Its extraordinary timber roof construction has the shape of a huge manta ray which seems to hover above the station.

Two Dlubal customers have been involved in the project. WIEHAG Holding AG planned, produced and assembled the timber structure, the engineers of enartec – engineering + architecture performed the structural analysis for the roof structure in RFEM.
