Its very interesting to see that Liverpool St Station will have what appears to be a funicular lift/ inclined railway next to the escalators for the disabled. Such a pity that the Victoria Line was not built with stations in as generous a manner as the Jubilee extension and QE line.

The Victoria line probably pre-dates a lot of legislation that brought about accessibility for the infirm.

Theres an underground shopping centre running between the two, so sort of impossible.

If it had been planned well in advance you could have seen a very grand canary wharf station. As it is you will have three rather grand ones (CR, Underground and DLR), none of them directly connected.

I'm familiar with the shopping centre, but I thought (hoped) they might have bored a tunnel underneath it. Oh well.

Isn't there also the basements/piles of the surrounding buildings to contend with?

You can get between the two under cover though. Itís a convoluted route through the shopping mall but then what isnít at Canary Wharf.

My post was about the logistics of building a link from the station underground to the shopping centre.

Canary Wharf station also sits in the dock with a slither of murkey sewage water between it and the rest of the estate.

Development on top of Farringdon Crossrail Station, does it have its own thread?

Is this plot part of the same development?

It's quite dull and plain but it could be worse, there is a decent amount of covered area for passengers, which could quite easily have been value-engineered away. As far as has been made clear, it's not the design/finishes that have been the problem, it's more fundamental parts of the build

The Maryland refurbishment for Crossrail is a bit underwhelming, they basically painted the stairwell:

Many stations are being tarted up as TFL, have taken over operation of the stations. Step-free access will follow.

It's actually quite a pleasing station. Like a child's drawing of a building. The area around it is pretty grim, a world away from the gleaming park round the corner. Step free access is good but look at the space passengers get outside! Maybe better later this year:

Much wider footways, in particular at the station entrance to create a safe and welcoming arrival to Maryland

New public spaces with trees, seating and cycle parking

The “Twisty Clock” will be slightly repositioned and the clock face improved

Introducing a 20mph speed limit and traffic calming measures

The changes outside the station will make a big difference as the pavements currently are far too narrow and the barriers and lack of trees make the area very uninviting. The station upgrade does include step free access, toilets, some new lighting, actual ticket gates and office but yeah maybe a bit underwhelming considering what some other stations are getting.

They have started the outside work but its a bit of a shame they are using a different (cheaper) looking paving type than the recent Stratford Gyratory upgrades. Would off been nice to keep them the same.

Maryland is an oddity of a place...sort of like an appendange of stratford.

Pub quiz fact; one of the few old places in the UK named after somewhere in the US.

It's OK, with the boundary commission changes it won't be in Stratford but Forest Gate South
