6 July - Not much to show for no trains

Crossrail Crossrail Crossrail Crossrail

Crossrail CrossrailThe North Kent Line may have been closed again all weekend but there is not a lot to show for it. Compare with last week.

The only activity within sight of Abbey Wood station this morning was a few men (Photo 2) who appeared to be doing no more than filling imperfections in the rendering on the new footbridge at Church Manorway and, same as last week, another group constructing something between the tracks near Eynsham Drive.

During the past week the bridge foundations (Photo 1) on the north side of Church Manorway have made considerable progress, the fence near the approach to the Plumstead tunnel portal (Photo 3) has been removed and the fence at the end of Florence Road, Abbey Wood has gone too.

Tomorrow the Traffic Order allowing the removal of six parking spaces and a bus stop in Gayton Road comes into force.

On 16th July Crossrail will host another of their ‘meet the public’ events in the Abbey Wood Community Centre on Knee Hill. 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
