Sub­way cre­ates new link to Park

The Wharf - - News -

A 2,000-tonne con­crete sub­way has been driven into place un­der Hack­ney Wick.

The gi­ant con­struc­tion was built on the sur­face and then laid un­der the rail­way sta­tion.

The sub­way is part of a £25mil­lion scheme to trans­form the sta­tion which neigh­bours the Queen El­iz­a­beth Olympic Park.

It will pro­vide ac­cess at ground level, north to south, be­neath the ex­ist­ing rail­way line, and re­place the foot­bridge, which was taken out in early Fe­bru­ary. Tower Ham­lets Coun­cil and Hack­ney Coun­cil have both con­trib­uted £1mil­lion to­wards the re­fur­bish­ment of the sta­tion.
