@obbitz great work gathering this up and revitalising this development topic
Excellent article on the [URL=“http://diamondgeezer.blogspot.co.uk/search?updated-max=2016-11-29T07:00:00Z”]Diamond Geezer’s blog[/URL] on the Hackney Wick developments.
One that he mentioned that had slipped past me is the the former Lea Tavern site.
PEDESTRIAN SUBWAY INSTALLED UNDER RAILWAY LINE AT HACKNEY WICK IN FOUR DAY WEEKEND
Passengers will be able to get to their trains quicker and easier when the new station is completed next year, following the installation of a pedestrian subway.
TUESDAY 18 APRIL 2017
The 2,000 tonne concrete structure was driven into place during the Bank Holiday weekend, following its construction on the land next to the station. In an operation that took only four days, Network Rail’s main contractor VolkerFitzpatrick removed the existing tracks and platforms and excavated the land underneath to create space for the subway. The subway was then driven into place using self-propelled modular transporters. The track and platforms were then rebuilt so that train services could run as normal on Tuesday.
Great work Obbitz…first time on this thread which gives a good picture of Hackney Wick redevelopment snapshot. Look forward to lates updates as work progresses in the coming months. Thanks
