Landmark timber roof for Canary Wharf Crossrail station - page 2 of 3

Tweet this page


Architectural fit-out of the 185 metre long ticket hall is nearing completion, with eight 40 metre-long escalators, four lifts, flooring and wall cladding all in place.

The Group has also started constructing the 240 metre long passenger platforms, 28 metres below the surface of North Dock at Canary Wharf, following the exit of tunnel boring machines ‘Elizabeth’ and ‘Victoria’ over the summer.

Work has also largely been completed on the covered elevated walkway between North Colonnade at Canary Wharf and the station, across Adams Place.

The station will also provide much enhanced pedestrian and vehicle access between Canary Wharf and Poplar to the north - encouraging the local residential community to come into Canary Wharf to use the roof garden and amenities.

Cliff Bryant, Executive Director of Canary Wharf Contractors Limited, said: “We hope that because of the sheer scale, roof design and retail amenities, Londoners will come to regard the Crossrail station at Canary Wharf as one of the capital’s most impressive.

“The team have done a great job getting the engineering and construction to this point. Putting the Foster-designed roof on top will be the icing on the cake. It has been a challenging project, especially building in water and in such close proximity to the world-class businesses headquartered nearby.”
