15 February (Part 3) - Something afoot in Gayton Road. Network Rail gets ready to demolish Abbey Wood station

CrossrailCrossrail’s signage is plentiful but not always very informative. For the past week there have been three new signs sited close to Abbey Wood station apologising for some unexplained inconvenience. However there are clues…

The south side footbridge ramps have been given extra protection, the second Site-Eye camera is trained on the station, and the next Sunday line closure is 1st March. One might guess that the station building is not for this world much longer.

I should perhaps have a nostalgic attachment to it but don’t. According to one local website it was officially opened on the day I moved to Bexley borough in May 1987. I was attracted by the second lowest level of local taxation in London. Ha!

At the far end of Fendyke Road (the end of the electrified line) there are more developments. As almost the nearest resident I asked Crossrail what they were doing there but they did not reply.

It looks to be a major installation, the smaller cabin appears to be a toilet block with both Ladies and Gents entrances.
