London, 24 November 2011 – BFK, a three-way joint venture comprising BAM Nuttall, Ferrovial and Kier, has been awarded a £200m+ contract on the Crossrail scheme for major works at Farringdon Station.

Works are due to start on 16 January 2012 with completion scheduled for 2018 although civils, tunnelling and fit-out works will be substantially complete by mid 2016.
