These photographs of the Abbey Wood public footbridge demolition need little comment. The track was protected by wooden beams suspended on blocks above the rails. The
beams were covered by a plastic membrane and topped out with compressed wood fibre boards. The pneumatic drills moved in
at 1:30 p.m. and work is scheduled to go on until 9 a.m. tomorrow morning after
which the debris must be cleared away in time for the first train on Monday morning.
