Old Farm

4 October - Crossrail again

Footbridge Footbridge FootbridgeWhen I took the train to London last Wednesday I mistakenly thought the old Church Manorway footbridge had been taken away but this morning’s visit made it obvious I was mistaken. The new footbridge may be complete but safe access still has a long way to go.

There were Crossrail employees with nothing to do sitting in sentry boxes on each side of the bridge apparently on some sort of guard duty. The bridge itself is heavily vandal proofed to prevent idiots dropping metal bars on to the track as used to happen regularly at the bridge close to my home until it was mesh covered several years ago.

Around Abbey Wood station work is concentrated on constructing the temporary station and putting the finishing touches to the footbridge - and painting fences of course.

Posters have gone up on the station platforms confirming the temporary station will open by the end of the month and the not so old (1987) one will start to come down in November.
