28 February (Part 2) - The week’s Crossrail news

CrossrailTomorrow there are no trains through Abbey Wood; the natural expectation is that the 28 year old station will be reduced to rubble, but the men in orange suits say otherwise. I am planning to take the day off and tomorrow’s blog is already written.

Today the finishing touches were being put to the end wall of the terrace house in Fossington Road which lost its neighbour to Crossrail several months ago.

The piling machine made its way under the new footbridge and has been working in what was the station car park and this morning more machinery was being delivered to the site.

As you may notice, the old station footbridge has gone. It is said it was taken away by an orange clad gang in the early hours of 22nd February. So much for Network Rail’s promise to alert me to any particularly good photo opportunities.
