Stratford International DLR photos

User Class 50 on Flickr has photos of progress on the DLR station at Stratford International. One shows the station box close up (ignore the mentions of Crossrail in the caption). For context, check out this wider shot and the project map.

The station is deep inside the Olympic exclusion zone, so you're not going to see photos like this very often.

I haven't heard the Olympic Park being described as the "Olympic exclusion zone" before! Sounds like the kind of thing that might happen in Beijing this summer when the Olympics comes to the People's Republic and the people get excluded...

(Incidentally 'tis the first comment I have left on this weblog, how exciting!)

The whole area is an enclosed building site now, with high fences and security gates.

(actually, I notice the station isn't technically within the park, but that doesn't mean you can get anywhere near it)

it's totally enclosed by big blue hoardings, and there is a *lot* of security - of course the station has been completed for ages. By the time the first paying passenger steps off a train it will be years old...
