An area of Canary Wharf that has been sealed off for years has recently reopened as a long covered footbridge linking the future Elizabeth line station to the famous steel clad skyscraper has been completed.

A long straight elevated walkway, it seems reminiscent of airports rather than railway stations. The walkway is supported on large V shaped struts, with the modern fashion for a shallow waterfall at the base.

Elsewhere, landscaping has seen a row of staggered plant pots running alongside, with seating facing away from the walkway.

Up closer, the main entrance next to the road still waits to be completed.

Down below, the completion of the walkway also opens up the long locked doors from the subterranean shopping centre to the wider dock walks.

And this is what the site looked like back in May 2011.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but 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 its 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 your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    I can’t get enough of how ridiculously Sci-Fi this whole setup looks, I work in Games and this genuinely looks like something the Games Industry would design. Fantastic.
