Canary Wharf Crossrail station
Canary Wharf Crossrail station
Construction taking place at the site of a new station for Crossrail at Canary Wharf. Crossrail is a 16billion scheme to build a new railway running from west to east beneath Central London, due to open in 2018.

Canary Wharf was built during the regeneration of London's Docklands in the late 20th Century. The new station at Canary Wharf occupies the site of part of a dock. This part of the dock was drained in order that the station could be built.
