Some new renders of Foster's Isle of Dogs Station which is U/C now. Incidently I think a good view of the site can be had from the Poplar Station footbridge over Aspen Way - if anyone local fancies a photoshoot?

Images sourced by nick-taylor over on Wired New York ( well what's sauce for the goose - eh London lad? )

fantastic design and great use of space in the old dock. The grassy roof/garden is a cracking idea. So the first piles went in last week attended by BoJo and Gordzilla. Rare positive news for politicians.

For those looking for a photo of the construction going on at the Canary Wharf crossrail station, the excellent Diamond Geezer was down there recently and took his camera, check the post for the 16th May.

Thanks LL. Looking at the render you wonder why they don't just turn that part of Cowcross Street into a covered arcade?

I can't stand the overly large entrance to Tottenham Court Road, does it honestly have to be that tall?

I wish I had my camera on me, Tottenham Court Road is absolutley crazy with demolition and construction at the moment, there is an enormous yellow crane streched across the main road, lots of people just looking and wondering what was happening, this area of town is going to be unrecognisable.. thankfully!

Does anyone know the schedule for the work on Crossrail? (Other than it being completed by 2017).

Isle of Dogs (now Canary Wharf, way to make it more confusing) looks amazing. Knowing the way things are going nowadays, it won't nearly end up as great as those renders look.

Generally, tunneling will start in 2010/2011 and finish in 2015/2016. Construction of the central stations will start over the next year or two, and I imagine most of the concrete pouring will be done by 2015.

there's a white tower crane now in situ at the back of the Astoria, presumably to aid with demo. Hold on to your (hard) hats chaps.

Great images, thanks everyone,

Isle of Dogs: Can anyone explain the need for so many levels between platform level and entrance level. Are these floors for retail? It would have been really dramatic to have an open box with long escalators from surface to platform level, with a long rooflight above lighting right down to the rails.

The Tottenham Ct Rd design by Hopkins looks excellent, though the finishes appear rather dark. I'm not convinced by the Farringdon elevation design, though this is the only image I have seen.

The Liverpool Street Station layout is amazing, extending to Moorgate! This seems reminiscent of the Northern Line Bank platforms extending from the Circle line to Embankment/Circle & District Line.

Farringdon station extends all the way to Barbican station too. These are long underground platforms

Looking at this plan, ought the pedestrian tunnel between the platform tunnels be extended westwards to connect the concourse areas at both ends? This central spinal pedestrian tunnel could then serve those wishing to walk the length of the station, from Liverpool Street to Moorgate, without having to walk along the platforms - as happens at the Northern Line Bank/Embankment branch. Perhaps it could have moving walkways?
