Although I did once go down underground into the station, here are a few photos I took over the weekend of the visible part of the building works, with reasonably close comparisons with previous photos I took. Difficult to get exact comparisons, partly as I forget the exact spot I stood at each time, and also because they have erected wire fencing along the best vantage spots.
I presume local office workers were knocking coffees and ciggies over the balcony when on a break and they had to put up fencing. Grrr!
Also worth noting is the extract from a poster they have put up – which shows the steel rings being attached to the ends of the station wall. These rings were on the surface in May when I last visited the site, but are now in place, and ready to receive the tunnel boring machine when it arrives next year.
When I was there, all they had was a paint mark on the wall.
Also – other Crossrail related blog posts.
Finally, the TBM that will be doing the tunnelling was shown off last week – more here.
