To be honest I was pretty disheartened with yesterday’s news that Crossrail’s opening will now be delayed for nine months. I was looking forward to it’s opening in December: this awesome new facet of the metropolis, allowing one to cross it with ease. I will be able to get all over the city, just by popping down to Woolwich; exploring will be so much easier once Crossrail opens. It will also be something new to explore in itself. Unfortunately it seems that exploration will now have to wait. Oh well – I suppose a short delay can be forgiven on a project as enormous as this.
