Network Rail has begun work to build the new station at Abbey Wood as part of the Crossrail programme. Abbey Wood will be the furthest stop for Crossrail trains heading East, before returning to London.
The first of more than 100 piled foundations which will support the new station have been installed. The piling will continue until the end of the year, when the building will start to become visible above ground.
The station, which will be built over two new dedicated Elizabeth line tracks and those used by North Kent services, will open at the end of 2017.
Work has been underway in Abbey Wood since 2013 and has included the construction of an interim station, the demolition of the old station and the installation of a new one mile section of track.
The station, when complete will also have a bit of a manta-ray look about it, from above.
