Exploring The Woolwich Station Box

Berkeley Homes had the excellent idea of having an open day to show those that wanted the inside of the new Crossrail station box at Woolwich.

It was a very professionally organised visit and we had met in the Dial Arch pub and then walked down into where in a few years, trains will be either rushing through at up to 100 kph or stopping to drop off and pick up passengers.

I have called the two ends of the box, London and Kent.  The former is the western end and the next station is Canary Wharf, whereas the other is the eastern end that leads to Abbey Wood.

There are going to be some stunning pictures here, when the tunneling machines break through on their way from Plumstead to Canary Wharf.

    • They should do this more often with large construction projects. Although this is actually Berkeley Homes, Crossrail have been very forward in explaining what they have been doing. I think too it helps with getting round some of the disturbance and problems created by the works.

  3. […] Nothing is planned here yet, but read this post on London Reconnections. A large amount of residential and other development is to be built over the West London Line at Earls Court. The railway line will be enclosed in a concrete box. This sounds very similar to Crossrail at Woolwich, where a station is being built under a massive development. […]
