Ramping up again…

Time-apse video encapsulates impact of Coronavirus.

Skanska has led the demolition of a 1960s concrete ramp and canopy at Euston station in London, prior to the construction of the new HS2 Euston station. The action from that project is captured in a pleasant but largely forgettable time-lapse video (below).

But the reason for sharing the video is not the action itself. Rather it is the fact that Skanska has highlighted the COVID-19 lockdown in the project’s timeline. The video itself is nothing out of the ordinary. But it will stand as a permanent reminder of the time the UK construction and demolition sector just went home.
