Yr11 Crossrail Trip

Back to Latest News

Paige Francis, Tami Akarakiri and I went to central London last Tuesday to visit the 'heart of Crossrail'. 

We travelled to the construction site in Farringdon and were welcomed by members of the Crossrail team including project manager of Farringdon Linda Miller and MP Claudia Webbe. Claudia Webbe delivered a very insightful speech to promote women in STEM careers, as she is part of the movement in Parliament for women's rights. We then split into groups and had two talks from two professionals, engineering managers, quantity surveyors and site engineers. 

Both talks were very interesting as we all look to our careers in the future! We acquired this opportunity through ULAS and had a really great time, we look forward to having more opportunities in the future.
