Hackney Fashion Hub

The Hackney Fashion Hub is a major regeneration project on the edge of Hackney Central town centre that will create a new focal point for UK fashion in the heart of London’s East End. The project is being pushed along by Harry Handelsman the brains and brawn behind the restoration of St Pancras.

Kudos for Hackney if this project gets the nod.


Crossrail finishes first tunnel

Crossrail has completed the construction of the first of its new train tunnels under London. It comes as Crossrail’s tunnelling machines reach the 13 mile point in their 26 mile marathon tunnel build.

Crossrail tunnelling machine Phyllis has finished the project’s first train tunnel, 17 months after commencing her 4.2 mile (6.8 km) journey from Royal Oak in west London and Farringdon in central London.
