Thanks to this video from Crossrail, we can take a look inside the new Woolwich Elizabeth line station at Royal Arsenal Riverside.
The station reached a new milestone in May, as it was transferred from Crossrail to Transport for London, ready for the next stage of the extensive commissioning process. Berkeley was a part of the early project team, delivering the station box for fit out.
The new Woolwich station is a key part of Berkeley's Royal Arsenal Riverside neighbourhood, which includes more than 5,100 homes set amongst 34 acres of public open space, and a host of cultural, heritage, retail and leisure facilities.
Regeneration began with the restoration of Royal Arsenal's 23 heritage buildings and creating welcoming and safe public spaces. A mix of amenities have opened up over time, including pubs, cafés, shops, offices, a medical centre, pharmacy, Heritage Centre, the Academy of Performing Arts, a brewery, restaurants and a crèche.
More than 500 trees have been planted and for the first time in generations local families can enjoy a walk along the Woolwich riverside.
