weren’t there at 8 a.m. this morning but by lunchtime half of Felixstowe Road car park
was fenced off and men were at work clearing the peripheral shrubbery.
Crossrail will transform Abbey Wood even before the line opens. The existing tracks are to be realigned southwards and a new temporary station begins construction within the next month or two. The impact has already been felt by some nearby residents and everyone is likely to suffer to some extent before the benefits are reaped.
From today Felixstowe Road car park is reduced to about half its former size. Full closure is scheduled for 15th September 2013.
