Construction begins on Excel's Crossrail station
The next stage of Crossrail's transformation of east London begins next week when construction starts on Custom House station.
Hoardings have already gone up at the site of the former North London line stop - last used in 2006.
Workers are to put in a new ticket hall, a Docklands Light Railway interchange and street level access.
Laing O'Rourke will manufacture most of the station off-site at its Sheffield factory.
The structure will include a transparent plastic roof.
When Crossrail begins in 2018, Custom House will have up to 12 trains an hour from central London.
The adjacent Excel London will be the main beneficiary of the new station.
Its chief executive David Pegler said: "We are already well connected but Crossrail will ensure that we are one of the most accessible venues in the world, making ExCeL more compelling as a destination and choice for event organisers."
On completion of Crossrail, journey times should be around 15 minutes from central London to Custom House.
