The Canary Wharf Station is still under construction after the proposal for the project was submitted over five years ago. However, progress is coming along smoothly and is expected to be finished by 2015.
The design by Foster + Partners features a latticed roof canopy, unlike most railway stations. "Crossrail, Europe’s largest infrastructure project, will connect the British capital from east to west, with ten stations and 42 kilometers of tunnels beneath the city," states DesignBoom. The entire also looks very futuristic with the roof jutting out in a curved shape over the ground. It certainly signals the modernity seeping through the transportation system in Britain. Using the train as a method of getting around is so common in the country, so it will help to have an additional network for commuting.
