The Anonymous Widower

Crossrail’s Giant Pimple

If you travel North from Canary Wharf on a 277 bus towards Hackney and Highbury and Islington station, as you go under the railway bridge that carries the c2c trains between Fenchurch Street and West Ham stations, you’ll see a Cerossrail building site on your left.

It looks like a small hill or just a giant pimple in the corner of Mile End Park.

Note that the last three pictures were taken from a c2c train passing over the railway bridge.

It’s actually the vent and evacuation shaft for Crossrail and it has been arranged, so it can be used as a view point for the nearby football pitches.
