Network Rail continue Lewisham rail upgrade as new homes rise

Network Rail’s £8 million project to replace rail in the Lewisham area is progressing with a bunch of photos released by the organisation.

The images show Lewisham’s changing skyline and work under way at another site on Silver Street.

Now under construction

The project is now branded Axion and was covered on this site back in March 2021.

Silver Street development 

The site comprises 141 homes beside the rail line.

A former warehouse was demolished over the past year, which is just one of a number of developments that will become evident in 2022.

Another is a tower on the former Tesco car park beside Lewisham station on Connington Road.

Tallest in Lewisham upon completion

It’s currently up to around the sixth floor – almost another 30 to go. You won’t be able to miss it, and it will include a rooftop viewing area open to the public.

There is of course also Lewisham Gateway which will see further cladding applied in 2022. Upon completion hundreds of homes, shops and cinema will be located here.

We may also see further plans emerge or many new homes on the current site of Lewisham shopping centre next year.

Landsec are looking at 2,500 homes according to their latest financial results. This number is not included in the current public consultation.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

I also have a Facebook page for the site here

Thank you
