Crossrail

I've just been checking the last lot of planning stuff for the big Crossrail project, basically a new east-west railway line across London, which got government approval this week.

It looks like the main Western tunnel entrance (where the track goes below ground to dip under Central London) will be due south across the railway lines from my house, and about fifty yards to the East. But it'll be in a cutting at that point, it doesn't run on the surface until it's a quarter mile or so to the West, so hopefully not too much noise when it's running. Of course actually building the thing won't be exactly quiet...

It'll be interesting to see what happens to property prices around here over the next few years - LOTS of people want to live here, in part because access to transport is so good, with Crossrail working it'll be even better. But actually reaching that point will not be huge fun for neighbours of the scheme.
