Crossrail worker died in excluded area
10th July 2014

The Chairman of Crossrail, Terry Morgan, has spoken about the accident in March where a worker died in one of the rail project's tunnels.

Speaking to Alex Beard on London Live's Power Lunch, Morgan revealed more about the incident.  He said: “This individual went into an area that was excluded, shouldn’t have been there and we’re still trying to understand why it happened.”

After the incident 12,000 workers on the project stopped work for a week, to be retrained in safety.

Morgan was also asked on the two fatalities of cyclists that involved Crossrail lorries, he said: “We think we’re doing everything possible that we know about today, but every time there’s a risk, there’s a threat of a risk; we’re very open to look for further improvements.”
