We have some work on next weekend (20th and 21st) but nothing that will make a particularly good photo, most of it digging drainage and crossings alongside and underneath the track. That’s it until the new year.
With so many other things to do pre-Christmas and that library closure report was not exactly quick to prepare, I didn’t bother to look at Crossrail last weekend. The photos below are of minor developments the previous week and not far from the station.
With the North Kent line needing to be realigned slightly towards the south, Gayton Road will have to undergo some changes too. The vehicle in Photos 3 and 4 was unusual, it was a giant vacuum cleaner marked ‘Vacuum Excavation’.
