Inside Canary Wharf Crossrail Station

This was one of the must-see events in Open House.

The areas we saw were the bottom levels of Canary Wharf station where trains and passengers go.  On the top of these floors is a large retail mall.

This is the future, where stations are more than just means to access the trains. The new Birmingham New Street station has another large retail mall on top and the new Crossrail station at Woolwich, is underneath masses of flats, as is my local station of Dalston Junction. Land is expensive, but digging down or building in the sky only increases its value and hopefully gives benefits to all of us.

    Some interesting photos of the inside of the new cross-rail station under construction at Canary Wharf. I cant wait for it to open – from home to Heathrow in an hour! Could also mean that some more job opportunities in west London will be in reach.
