In Pictures: Canary Wharf Crossrail Station

14 comments

Of all the new stations on the Crossrail Route it is Canary Wharf that has arguably progressed the fastest. Here work on on the four floor structure itself is effectively complete and fit-out underway, with work on the timber lattice work now underway. The reasons for the station’s speedy progress aren’t entirely rail-related. The upper floors of the station will function as a shopping centre once completed and Canary Wharf Group, under whose contruction arm the station is being built, are thus understandably keen to complete work as soon as possible. Currently, that translates to an intention to open the retail elements of the station, along with what should be a very impressive roof garden, in 2015.

The photos below were taken of the site last week, mainly at ticket hall level.
