You’ve read about my visits to various Crossrail building sites, and now at last, its your turn.

Crossrail is holding a series of open days and will let people into their station building sites to have a look and see what the billions of pounds is buying us.

The tours will provide you with the opportunity to get a glimpse behind the hoardings and view the works from safe viewing areas. Not down into the tunnels, but still a good look at construction sites that are usually hidden from view.

The worksites will be opened up throughout January and February in a series of public tours, and the first details are now on their website, with others to be added later.

Bond Street — Sat 25th Jan or Sat 1st Feb

Farringdon — Tues 28th Jan or Thur 20th Feb

Woolwich station – Wed 12th FebThur 13th Feb

Whitechapel – Sun 9th FebSun 16th Feb

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Has a TBM really reached Whitechapel? The Telegraph reported it, but that was it.

    I’d love to go on a ride through the tunnels in a Land Rover like the Queen did in HS1. I’d pay for that!
