An Express Station

Crossrail have put up this time-lapse video of the building of the structure of Custom House station.

If you want to read the full details, it’s here on the Crossrail web site.

I believe the station is a major advance in the construction of buildings.

One of the engineers working on the station, told me that compared to traditional methods of pouring concrete on site, the quality is a lot better.

As Crossrail are claiming the whole structure was put together in a year and a day, it would appear to be quicker too!
