Counting Them All In And Counting Them All Out

I didn’t expect to be able to see much at Hackney Wick station today, but contractors were hard at work creating space to be able to move the subway into position.

Trucks turned-up full with ballast, dumped it for distribution by the digger and then backed in and were filled with the remains of the embankment, before driving off.

Note that the overhead electrifrication is still in place, although it is switched off.

It appears that there is a cable that was buried in the platform and they have decided to keep on digging. You can see it clearly above the trucks being filled.

One guy told me, that they were being exceedingly careful.

But if East London goes dark, we’ll know who to blame.
