3 September - Catching up with Crossrail

TCrossrailhere were no trains services between Slade Green and Plumstead last weekend and the Dartford bound track has now been realigned to ’match’ the Up line laid at the end of June.

Apart from what may be seen in the photographs there is little extra information that can be added.

It is self evident that work is falling behind the schedule published on Crossrail’s website - the new station was scheduled for Summer 2014 and there is no sign of it apart from the new footbridge.

If you lurk near the orange jacketed management staff occasionally to be seen around the site you may overhear them lamenting the fact that so little of the stuff delivered fits without remedial work. Maybe the recent BBC documentary was a touch optimistic.
