1 February - Crossrail piling on

Crossrail Piling commenced at Abbey Wood station this week to support the realigned North Kent lines. The piles are about 30 feet long, delivered by lorry in bundles of six, and go into the ground so easily and relatively noiselessly that you would think Crossrail is being built over an old Thames flood plain.

The Site-Eye camera is installed on the station footbridge, the entrance to the Crossrail depot in Felixstowe Road has been closed and a new one has been constructed around the corner.

In Alsike Road, east of the station, more ground has been fenced off in preparation for the Crossrail overrun track, and as predicted, the Gayton Road street lamps have been removed.

Bexley council has active traffic orders for closing Felixstowe Road and banning all parking in Alsike Road.
