Do you know whether this the replacement bridge (it looks too long from what I can see?) or whether this is the 'flyover' to connect the extension to the current Southern Tracks south of New Cross Gate?
Yes I believe that would be the new flyover adjacent to the new depot at New Cross Gate, it's due to be lifted into place in May. Incidentally, I understand the new bridge across Shoreditch High Street was due to be lifted into place yesterday.

The new bridge at Surrey Canal Road will be a like-for-like replacement with a simple flat deck. I haven't figured out why the old one was demolished.

Tubeman, I noticed that at the end of the platforms on the Central line (where the driver will look forwards when at the station, terrible description I know) I noticed that the signal had three colours, red, green and white, do you know what the white one is for?

Most platforms would just have the white light I believe, I'm guessing other aspects are only available if there are points beyond the platform. All it indicates is that the train ahead has got far enough away that the driver can close the doors and press 'go' I think.

So a green means the train can carry on to the next station and a white means the train can leave but may have to slow down or stop in the tunnels? I think you're right because the lights went from red, to white and then to green.

Are they doing a sly Hampstead Heath skank by putting Shoreditch High St in zone 1?

No...? And Hampstead Heath has also been moved back into zone 2 as of January this year.

Would have been nice to have something with a little more style to it since the area will be ripe for regeneration/conversion for more small scale commercial and residential once phase two comes online.
