Canary Wharf Crossrail building update

Crossrail building
Definitely time for a quick Crossrail project update, the last one I managed was on the 22nd of *July*, believe it or not...! The shot above I took just after coming back from paternity leave...
Crossrail building work - Canary Wharf
As you can see, while I have been away, they have been drilling down the tubes (it makes the building vibrate, despite the fact that we are twenty storeys away from the action) and then clean them out with *lots* of water (you can just about see them doing that in the bottom right of this shot) -

- and finally (I guess) top them up with re-enforced concrete (you can see the steel struts sticking out)...
