Here's what the new Crossrail station in Abbey Wood, south east London, will look like when it is completed.

The £130m building will replace the existing Abbey Wood station, which is on the North Kent line. The mainline platforms will sit above the Crossrail terminus, which marks the south-eastern outpost of the line. The increase in services will be good news for those living in nearby Thamesmead, which still lacks a station, despite longstanding rumours of a DLR extension.

The current building will be demolished and replaced with a temporary station next summer. The station is expected to open in 2017 for the North Kent platforms, with Crossrail's current opening date set for late 2018.
