Crossrail’s Tunnelling Site on the Limmo Peninsular

If you take the Docklands Light Railway from Poplar to Canning Town, the train takes a wide loop just after East India station. The enclosed area is the Limmo Peninsular and it sits in a loop of the River Lea as it travels towards the River Thames. In the distance there is an enclosure with several large cranes surrounded by blue fencing.

I would assume that this is tunnelling site for Crossrail. The picture was taken from the platform at Canning Town station.

A couple of days after I took the picture, I went back again and took a picture of the site from a train on the Docklands Light Railway going to Beckton.

I also took another showing an impressive set of Portacabins.

Portakabins Galore!

You can just see the Crossrail logo on the buildings.
