coming nine days are very important ones for Crossrail at Abbey Wood. The past
two weeks have seen the first station support wall built, the new platform
asphalted and the track bed finished. Tomorrow the ballast and rails go down.
Next weekend the new track will be connected with recently replaced ‘old’ track and on the 22nd February trains will use the new platform. It’s only ten coaches long but will be increased to twelve by the time the new station opens.
The plan to sign off the last two weeks of pictures on Sunday 14th has to be changed. The photo feature pages are automated but can only handle a maximum of 100 pictures, there are already 83 and a busy weekend is sure to push the number over the limit.
