11 May (Part 3) - Beyond the barriers. A look inside the new Abbey Wood station

CrosrailI was thrilled and privileged to get an invitation from Network Rail to venture inside Abbey Wood's new and massive landmark, the Crossrail station due to open in only five months time.

My guides, Network Rail’s PR lady and Raj Pathak the always helpful senior site manager showed me the bare walls of the offices and the ticket windows and the shops and toilets opposite. The wooden roof could be seen in all its glory.

At the weekend a similar roof will go over the stairs to the Crossrail platform and the footbridge at the western end of that platform should be carefully lowered into place.

There is no time for slacking!
