19 October (Part 3) - Crossrail news

Balfour BeattyThings are slowly gathering pace in Abbey Wood. Balfour Beatty’s encampment in Felixstowe Road is nearing completion and parking is to be banned nearby before the end of the month, presumably to allow large vehicles access via the new entrance in the forground of the picture.

Around half the spaces in the station car park are now taken over by construction workers but as yet there has been no significant impact on commuter parking south of the railway line.

The new station plan has been approved by Bexley and Greenwich councils. A pity nobody was prepared to give the go ahead for Crossrail years ago. We will soon be able to get across London in 40 minutes, rather less than it takes to cross the Thames to Newham no more than a couple of miles away. Well done Teresa.
