Not a bad idea. I wonder what they do with these pavilions each year, do they re-erect them elsewhere, anyone know?

Morgan Sindall bags £24m London school trio

The London Borough of Brent has picked Morgan Sindall to deliver three primary school projects in north London.

Morgan Sindall will demolish the existing dining hall, kitchen and three single storey classroom blocks to make way for a two-storey modular block hosting 20 classrooms, group rooms, reception rooms and a staff room linked at ground floor to a new hall and kitchen.

It will also expand capacity at Uxendon Manor Primary School in Harrow. This £7.9m project includes enabling works including demolishing existing buildings on site to make way for construction of a new sports hall and two storey, 16 classroom extension.

The third expansion project at Stonebridge Primary School will involve a two storey classroom block with multi-purpose hall and improvements to the Grade II listed existing main school building.

Thales installs new signalling equipment on four London Underground lines

Global transportation systems provider Thales has begun installing new signalling equipment between Edgware Road and Hammersmith as part of Transport for London's (TfL) major modernisation programme of the next four underground lines.

The installation is the first part of a complete overhaul of the signalling and control systems across the District, Circle, Hammersmith, City, and Metropolitan lines.

On completion, London Underground will be able to operate more trains at a greater speed, providing a 33% rise in capacity by the early 2020s.

The company's managing director Andrew Pollins said: "This is a major step in delivering this vital upgrade for millions of our customers. The signalling system on these lines is some of the oldest in use anywhere in the world, with parts of it dating back to the 1930s.

"The use of this newer and more sophisticated signalling system will mean more frequent, more reliable, and less crowded journeys, which will help us meet rapidly growing customer demand."

Designed to be deployed in phases by 2021, the new signals will deliver major benefits by 2022. This will see an increase in the frequency of trains running during peak periods to 32 every hour in central London.

The project will also be able to create 1,100 jobs and 60 apprenticeships.

Greenwich is gunna be a massive skyline, when I saw the renders i was skeptical that knight dragon would actually build all these towers, but they are actually doing it, so many plots all rising together. Knight dragon is from Hong Kong so I suppose it's how they do things there and now its how they are now doing things in London too. we are not used to seeing this in Europe, Greenwich is a mega project full of towers actually all being built, very rare in europe

Northern Line Extension | Battersea - Nine Elms - Kennington

London forum thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=648864



Forumer Swissdave with photos and information about the recently installed gantry crane to lower the TBMs.

The first photo shows the first beam on Saturday, as it was being lifted into place (incidentally, this week was a good one for craneophiles, they have been everywhere in Vauxhall!) -

The second shows the finished product on Monday (though it is still missing some rails to the west).

There's a look at the TBMs themselves in this article:

Quote:


The two 650 tonne tunnel boring machines have been finished and will start building the 3.2km tunnel from Kennington to Battersea in early 2017.

The 100 metre long machines were built by NFM Technologies in Le Creusot in central France and each have a 6-metre diameter cutting head in order to create two 5.2-metre diameter tunnels.
