Work will begin at the site of the old Custom House station this week ahead of the construction of a Crossrail station on the site.
Large parts of the station will be built at the Laing O’Rourke facility near Sheffield before being moved to Custom House and reassembled.
It will also have a roof made from transparent plastic material, EFTE, similar to the material that was used at the Eden Project in Cornwall.
This week hoardings will go up around the site ahead of demolition of the old North London Line station, which closed in 2006.
Up to 12 trains an hour will run between Custom House and Central London once the line opens. Journey time between Custom House and Bond Street will be around 10 minutes quicker and between Heathrow and Custom House will be around 35 minutes quicker.
Work is due to be finished in December 2015.
