The Harrow Manorway
viaduct is to become the main access point for Abbey Wood’s new ‘high level’ railway station which will straddle the two platforms and four tracks.
The temporary station was scheduled to open about now but there is precious little sign of it as yet. Nevertheless, work is proceeding on modifying the viaduct, the central reservation has been removed; it is reduced to one lane in each direction and some effort has been expended on trying to maintain the bus service with temporary bus stops while work continues.
The plan doesn’t work too well when two buses arrive at the same time as was the case here (Photo 4). Other road traffic is held up while the buses disgorge their passengers.
