Crossrail, London's £14.8bn rail programme, is approaching its halfway mark. Mark Odell reports on the magnitude of an undertaking that will connect the east and west of the city with a line that includes 21km of twin-bore tunnels dug beneath the capital.

What's the status of the building to the right of 122 Leadenhall Street with the antenna? If it's supposed to be the Minerva Building, why is it shown in the first place?

It is the Minerva Building. This is an old render, it was produced before the current low rise building was proposed and built. Im still gutted this building was never built I remember when they shelved it in favour of the low rise.

Balfour Beatty wins London Olympic stadium West Ham building contract

Construction firm boosted by £154m deal to convert arena into football club's new home and multi-purpose venue by 2016

Balfour Beatty has won the £154m contract to convert London's Olympic stadium into the new home of West Ham United, in a fillip for the construction firm's struggling UK business.

The project will employ up to 400 people at its busiest, as Balfour Beatty turns the 80,000-seat Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park into a multi-purpose venue taking in sport, cultural and community events by 2016. Balfour Beatty's work will reduce the stadium's capacity to 54,000 and install retractable seating to cover the athletics track.

The stadium in Stratford, east London, will also be the new national competition venue for UK athletics and will have a separate community athletics track. It will stage five games for the 2015 Rugby World Cup before West Ham move in.

This is really promising! Taller than 1CS? I really hope it will be really well thought and planned and will act as the new Pinnacle of CW! With all the new developments all around the area, a pinnacle is needed! What about the height restrictions though?

btw what's the Asian Business park they're talking about? and where abouts is Royal Albert dock?

There was a list of projects worth over a billion and your comment made me think it might be more useful to have one of projects under that mark, in case they get lost!

There's over 30 projects in London that cost more than £1 billion ($1.6bn)

It'd take too long to list projects under that mark.

Indeed taller than 1CS! I agree with a pinnacle structure but I do not think it will be centralised - maybe on one of the riverbanks of CW.

If I'm honest, I'm not too sure if the development will even be in CW itself... but the docklands area in general. I'm not too sure. I cannot see where it could go with all the developments going on, i.e. Hertsmere Tower, etc etc etc. Maybe closer to Wood Wharf area?

Keep in my mind I might be completely wrong lol
