Imperial Wharf work gets under way
A ground-breaking event to mark the start of construction of Imperial Wharf station on the West London line took place on 25 July. The project is being undertaken by St George Central London Ltd and forms part of the wider Imperial Wharf project, a mixed use development on the river Thames. The start of work follows agreement on a funding package with contributions from Hammersmith & Fulham and Kensington & Chelsea councils and Transport for London (p9, June).

 

By early August scaffolding has been erected on the embankment on the northern (Clapham-bound) side of the line and work had begun to demolish a wall on the south (Willesden-bound) side, while earth moving equipment had been moved onto a site adjacent to the line. Construction of the station by contractor Fitzpatrick includes piling, provision of ticket offices and lifts and the installation of pre-fabricated platforms. Opening is expected in 2010.
