Cofferdam Dewatering - London Crossrail

Long overdue for an update on the Crossrail station at Canary Wharf - This is before (well, actually all of this is sort of during)-
Water works

- oh and I actually know the technical term for this stage of the work too (thanks to more very interesting signs popping up at the foot of One Canada Square) it's "Cofferdam Dewatering" (as you probably guessed from the title of this post)-

Actually, as you can see, pretty much all of the water is gone now, meaning pretty much all of the steps in the above poster must have been completed (including the rescue of the fish)...all that remains is the plug the flood (sorry, almost impossible to get a shot of it thanks to it's location behind some stairs)-
Water leaking in...
- that seems to be coming from the basement of the Bank of America building and they can make a start on the foundations...!

Loads more pictures here, if you like this sort of thing... ;)
