London and Continental Engineering, project manager for the #3

billion channel tunnel rail link (CTRL), has hired Jan Critchley as its

first media relations expert.



Jan Critchley, former media relations manager for the Jubilee line

extension, joins CTRL’s 25-strong community relations team in a new

position. She reports to Bernard Gambrill, head of community relations

at London and Continental Engineering, a joint venture of the

engineering shareholders in CTRL developer London and Continental

Railways (LCR).



Critchley spent seven years at the Jubilee line extension, and oversaw a

media team of three people, on top of her role as deputy PR manager for

a 15-strong team.



Commenting on her new role, Critchley said: ’The aim is to minimise the

impact on local people as much as we can. It’s impossible to build a

major construction project without people knowing you’re there.’



Critchley will also build up a press team, but does not expect to hire

agencies.



Work begins in 1998 on the CTRL, which will link London’s St Pancras

station to the channel tunnel.
