    Emirates Airline

    This has now opened to the public, but I suspect its use will be a tad light noting that it transverses predominantly industrial and future redevelopment sites.

    London Station Development Aerial Updates

    Network Rail possess a helicopter to monitor rail infrastructure from the air, which also allows them to get some nice aerial shots...

    London King’s Cross & London St Pancras

    London Bridge
    The first phase of rebuilding London Bridge has been completed; this included the construction of the new viaduct through Borough Market (visible at the bottom) and the new roof over the concourse which was constructed as part of the Shard development. Work will recommence after the Olympics to complete the job of realigning the platforms (allowing for nine through tracks instead of the present six), and the new street-level concourse under the elevated viaduct.

    New S7 Stock

    With the entry into service of the majority of S8’s on the Metropolitan Line nearing completion, work has begun on introducing the first S7’s onto the remaining sub-surface lines (Circle, District and Hammersmith & City). The S7’s are essentially identical to the S8’s with air-conditioning and walkthrough gangways; the only two exceptions being the S7’s seven carriages instead of the S8’s eight, and the entirely longitudinal seating arrangement of the S7 reflecting the shorter journeys compared to the S8 which has a mix of longitudinal and transverse seating. In total 133 S7’s will be delivered by Bombardier in the coming years.

    Midland Main Line Electrification

    While the majority of rail lines in and around London are electrified (either overhead or third rail), there are a handful of lines which operate diesel services or are only partially electrified.

    As part of the transport overhaul package announced earlier this week, the remaining section of the Midland Main Line (MML) will be electrified. The MML is a busy commuter and intercity line that links cities such as Derby, Nottingham and Sheffield to London (St Pancras). The majority of services using the MML are Thameslink services: c. 15 London-bound each peak hour; with intercity services creating an additional 5 trains each peak hour.

    At the present moment, only the commuter (Thameslink) section is electrified; north of Bedford (Thameslink’s northern terminus) diesel services operate. The government is now putting together a £800mn upgrade package to electrify the line up to the city of Sheffield in South Yorkshire. Electrifying the entire length of the line will allow for higher speeds and greater line capacity.

    Great Western Main Line

    Electrification
    The Great Western Main Line (GWML) is one of Brunel’s greatest engineering achievements, yet only a small portion of the line (to Heathrow Airport) is electrified. With Crossrail being extended to Maidenhead, it was only a matter of time before the rest of the line network which fans out from London Paddington to Cardiff, Bristol, Bath and Cornwall would see wide-spread electrification.

    In 2010, the go ahead was provided by the government for the lines to Oxford and Newbury to be electrified as part of a significant overhaul of the entire GWML network – this would essentially cover the outer-suburban lines running in London, yet leave out the intercity services. In 2011, it was then announced that the programme of electrification would be extended to Cardiff and Bristol, yet at the time, Swansea (beyond Cardiff) would be left out.


    Image sourced from House of Commons Library


    This has now been resolved by the announcement that the GWML out to Swansea will now be entirely electrified. Furthermore all the associated commuter lines around Cardiff will be electrified as well, vastly improving the connections between communities in Cardiff’s metro area to London.

    Western Access to Heathrow
    Despite London Heathrow being on a spur from the GWML, there is no actual rail connection from the west to the airport. Rail travellers from Reading and beyond either take a bus to the airport or travel into London and then back out again. This is odd due to the significant amount of post-Heathrow development that occurred to the west of Heathrow, including Europe’s largest industrial estate in Slough, and various international/European HQ (Microsoft, Vodafone, etc...).

    There have been various schemes proposed in the past to alleviate the situation and open up routes to lower unnecessary car journeys to the airport; Airtrack was one, however this focused more on improving rail access to South West London.

    The government have now backed a £500mn project to link Heathrow Airport to the GWML in the west. Further clarity will be needed as to whether these are GWML services that terminate at Heathrow (there are a spare two platforms under Terminal 5 for such services) that originate from Cardiff, Bristol, etc..., Crossrail services that run through Heathrow rather than terminating, or new non-London termini terminating services.

    Kensal Green Gasworks

    Located due west of the western tunnel portal of Crossrail, the Kensal Green Gasworks site is a reasonably large plot bordered by the Great Western Main Line (GWML) and the Grand Union Canal. The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea has been seeking over the past few years the construction of a Crossrail station at the site to allow for higher density construction.

    Option 1 assumes that a Crossrail station isn’t built and that around 2,000 of 3-4 storeys would be built. Option 2 would see the construction of a Crossrail station, 2,500 new homes across 6 storey mansion style blocks, a new bridge across the GWML and another across the Grand Union across the Kensal Green Cemetery. The final option assumes the same as option 2, but more intensive development of 3,500 new homes and two new canal basins.

    Reading Station Development

    Reading is a major train station interchange due west of London for a variety of terminating and through-running commuter, intercity, cross-country and freight services. Prior to redevelopment work, the station was composed of twelve platforms spread across three islands which were insufficient to handle the significant and diverse quantity of trains that serve the station. In addition, immediately to the east and west of the station are flat junctions creating train movement conflicts. The station currently handles 14.4mn passengers per annum.

    In 2015 when remodelling works are completed, the station will consist of sixteen platforms across five islands, with a vast new over-bridge providing step-free access to all platforms and increased capacity during peak hours. The aforementioned flat junctions to the east and west will be rebuilt to avoid train conflicts and increase train movement efficiency across multiple lines. The rebuilding of Reading will also provide terminating capacity for future Crossrail and London Waterloo bound services.

    Slough Station Development

    Located in-between London Paddington and Reading, Slough is famous due its location for ‘The Office’ and Europe’s largest industrial estate. It is also home to a busy commuter station on the Great Western Main Line and terminus for a branch line to Windsor. The station is currently served by First Great Western commuter services and from 2018 by Crossrail. Slough which currently handles 5mn passengers a year will also be a major station for visitors to the Olympic & Paralympic rowing events nearby at Eton Dorney.

    As part of the ongoing work to regeneration Slough itself, the station forecourt has been rebuilt, while a new footbridge with step-free access has been constructed.

    East West Rail Line

    The government have now provided the go-ahead for not just the creation of the new orbital line (previously part of the Varsity Line linking Cambridge and Oxford), but that the line will be electrified.

    In connection to this, various non-electrified routes running up to Nuneaton (the periphery of Birmingham) will be electrified creating a non-diesel freight route from South Yorkshire to the southern coastal ports.

    Plans for London mayor to run train franchises put forward

    BBC News, 29 June 2012. Source: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-18637810

    While not exactly new (Livingstone, the previous mayor sought the same), Boris has put forward proposals to gain control over services currently operated by two of London’s major train operators: Southeastern and Greater Anglia. The proposals which have cross-party support aim to extend the Oyster ticketing system further, increase customer service levels, provide more secure and smarter stations and cut costs.

    The principal issue with the train operators is that they provide a wide variety of services including high-density inner suburban, outer suburban, intercity and rural/local across vast networks. This is exacerbated by the fact that longer distance passengers are typically more lucrative, thus penalising metro-services with poor frequencies (compared to the tube) or outdated rolling stock.

    By Transport for London taking over Greater Anglia’s Enfield Town, Cheshunt and Chingford services, and Southeastern’s Dartford, Hayes & Sevenoaks services, it is hoped that heavy rail standards will substantially improve for South-East Londoners. As illustrated by the rapid growth in ridership on the London Overground; a good service actually convinces more people to use the service. In the long-term, it could also build a stronger case for more Crossrail routes across London.

    London Waterloo Station

    Waterloo is London’s busiest station complex, handling over 180mn passengers per annum; a consequence of which has led to the concourse becoming exceptionally crowded at peak hours. Network Rail who own and maintain the station has subsequently constructed a balcony dedicated to retail to free the concourse of retail outlets.

    At 220m long, the balcony provides an extra 20,000 sq ft of retail space, and also provides step-free access to the neighbouring Waterloo East station.

    On a side note, £350mn has also been allocated by the government for lengthening of platforms at London Waterloo to cope with longer trains.

    Hitchin Flyover

    At the present moment, trains departing the East Coast Main Line heading towards Cambridge and Ely on the Fen Line, have to cross three other lines significant reducing capacity for commuter and intercity traffic. The solution to this has been the creation of a new 300 tonne flyover at Hitchin, which was successfully lifted into place earlier this month. The new chord will be open in 2014 to allow for higher train frequencies and a decrease in delays.

    On another topic, the government has also allocated £240mn of funding to provide additional improvements along the East Coast Main Line through Yorkshire and Lincolnshire for more efficient journeys to London.

    Greenwich Peninsula Development

    A vast site of former gasworks, scrapyards and industrial sites, the northern end has been partially developed around the 02 Arena and the North Greenwich transport hub. Yet progress to build 10,000 homes has been slow, principally due to a monopoly on developing the site. Fortunately it would appear that development will start to progress, with the Hong Kong billionaire Henry Cheng Kar-Shun taking a 60% share in the project:

    Leicester Square Redevelopment

    Leicester Square has recently opened after several months of refurbishment works to install new fountains, paving and greenery. Personally I tend to avoid the area as it simply becomes too busy with tourists, but an improvement on the messy previous incarnation nonetheless.

    [size=4]Meridian Water[size]

    Located in North London, Meridian Water is a vast mixed-use masterplan covering 82ha which is aiming to deliver 5,000 new homes. The present area consists of disused buildings, industrial warehouses and big box retail sites for IKEA and Tesco, but will be redeveloped in phases to harness the waterways network that permeates the site.

    Eastbury House Redevelopment

    A planning application for the redevelopment of the present 1950’s low-rise Eastbury House has been submitted. The present building will be demolished to make way for a Rogers Stirk Harbour tower that is composed of three sections, the tallest of which is 28 storeys tall. The tower incorporates the typical Rogers’ trademark use colour and cross-bracing, with one section being cantilevered.

    Albert Embankment is an assortment of post-war blocks that aren’t too nice on the eye, although this and the redevelopment of Hampton House (20 Albert Embankment) downstream by Norman Fosters’ practice (the cylindrical buildings seen below) will alleviate the environment. A nearby petrol station site is also being worked on by Richard Rogers which will incorporate a mixed-use tower.

    Westfield Whitgift

    Westfield, the Australian shopping centre developer has launched a consultation of their plans to redevelop the rather dated Whitgift Centre in Croydon, South London.

    Westfield’s plan includes 1.5mn sq ft of retail space, a leisure centre, and between 500-600 homes in four towers. If such a development emerged, there would be growing concern that Westfield would have a major dominance of large-scale shopping centres what with their 1.6mn sq ft Westfield London development in West London and the recently opened 1.9mn sq ft Westfield Stratford in East London.

    52-54 Lime Street

    US insurer WR Berkley recently announced that they are working on plans for a 40 storey tower as part of their strategy to tap into the London insurance and European marketplace. The present low-rise brick building is at the heart of London’s insurance sector, with Lloyds of London and the future global home of AON at 122 Leadenhall directly opposite.

    The following are images from a file of a previous KPF low-rise scheme, but it illustrates the location and present building.

    Guy’s & St Thomas Cancer Treatment Centre

    Guy’s Hospital which dates back to 1721 is a major presence in the London Bridge area, with a sprawling campus that includes the tallest hospital building in the world.

    One Nine Elms

    The One Nine Elms in Vauxhall received planning permission last month. The mixed-use development consists of two towers, one of 58 storeys, and another of 43 connected by a club mid-way up. The development consists of 487 apartments, a 209 room hotel, office and retail space. This development will replace the current Market Towers.

    Chaterhouse Quarter

    A low-rise development designed by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands for a site adjacent to the future Farringdon Crossrail station has received planning permission. The new building replaces a tower constructed in the 1960’s, unfortunately two sightlines towards St Paul’s restrict any high-rise development.

    Women's Olympics.

    44% of athletes were female. Seems like most of the memorable competitions were female.

    My wife just told me that that both the Australian women's b-ball team and Japanese women's football team flew coach, while the men's teams traveled first class.

    How does she find this stuff?
