Crossrail delays force factory workers to walk an extra mile to work

Back in March 2019 Hundreds of staff at the Tate & Lyle factory in Silvertown were forced to walk an additional mile to get to work for more than a year because of Crossrail delays. The works upgrading a railway bridge had taken nearly 18 months despite originally promising it would be renovated in only six weeks. A Crossrail spokesman apologized for the inconvenience caused and said that the footbridge is in a poor condition but they were optimistic about the bridge opening in September that year.
