With the former station demolished, pre-cast modules for the new station can start to be put together.The component parts of the new station are being fabricated in the state of the art Laing O’Rourke factory in Steetley and will now be assembled on site in East London.

The first sections to be delivered comprise columns and platform beams and slabs, which have been installed using a 120 tonne crane.

Building large sections of the station off site saves time and money and ensures that disruption to residents, existing rail services and the nearby ExCeL London conference and exhibition centre are minimised as far as possible.

The Crossrail station is being built on the site of the former station and will include a new ticket hall, an interchange with the Docklands Light Railway with access between platforms and street level.

Linda Miller, Project Manager at Custom House said: “A bit like a complex puzzle, piece by piece, we’ll be assembling the new station at Custom House over the next eighteen months.”
