25 October - Pee'd off with the inconvenience

Any spare time this weekend has been taken up with keeping on top of Crossrail developments. At least it has provided an excuse for not reporting on last Thursday’s Resources Scrutiny Committee meeting. Tomorrow maybe.

Several times I passed along Wilton Road where parking was even more difficult that usual. The taxi company was not only suffering the usual loss of trade that accompanies a weekend line closure but additionally his office had been hidden from anyone who might have looked in at the station and decided a cab was the best way out of trouble.

On Tuesday the traders have a meeting aimed at making Wilton Road look less like a toilet.

Unfortunately it is Greenwich council which sends someone to listen and the problems are all on the Bexley side of the road.

For the Crossrail followers, three new photo features…

The last two weeks around the station. See the canopy being installed and the never ending piling on the swamp that is to be transformed into a station. Also new track west of station.
Demolishing the TP Hut to provide the space for the North Kent line to reach the new London bound platform.
Track laying and tree felling to the east of Abbey Wood station.
