Read all comments Published: MBNA Thames Clippers is offering commuters the chance to swap wheels for water for a week then tell them whether they would consider making the change permanently. For four days in September, a capacity vessel will make the journey from Gravesend’s Town Pier, off West Street, into central London and back again.
The boat will travel from Gravesend into London for a trial period. There is even a coffee bar on-board as well as toilets, daily newspapers and the chance to sit up on deck if the weather is nice. In exchange for the free trip, the company is asking passengers to fill out a questionnaire about their experiences and the sort of service they would like to see if it were to become permanent. The boat will go up the River Thames into central London.

A large portion of the line, between Paddington in central London and Abbey Wood in the south-east, is due to open in Autumn At the time of this opening, that new section and two other existing routes will be officially renamed the Elizabeth line, after Queen Elizabeth II.

We have covered the North-Eastern arm of Crossrail on various occasions. The most recent of these was to look at the Crossrail launch plan. The western section out to Reading has its own issues and, of course, there was the official decision to extend Crossrail to Reading. What often gets overlooked, however, is the three short surface sections on the branch to Abbey Wood.
This article attempts to do something to rectify this by looking at the two surface stations that are being built on this branch. Not just a new underground railway The perception of Crossrail is generally of a new underground railway across London connecting existing lines outside the central area to form a cross London railway. This is largely true and accurate but two of the surface sections on the Abbey Wood branch provide a contrast to this with one completely new station and one completely rebuilt station including new additional platforms.
As a result, there is considerable Crossrail station construction activity here and, of course, because it is on the surface, it can actually be easily seen. This is the only completely new surface station on Crossrail.

The former James Bond actor, 64, was snapped planting a kiss on his bikini clad wife of 15 years after they took a dip in the ocean during a sunsoaked afternoon at their tropical island getaway.
