Massive crane looming over Earls Court

Cranes building the new development over the railway line on the boundary between at Earls Court, Brompton and Hammersmith in West London. This crane, massive even by London crane standards, is the solution adopted to spread the load to avoid damage during construction to the rail lines of the Overground, District and Piccadilly lines underneath.
This picture’s about awe, the huge size of the steel engineering being used to construct this new “village” within the urban environment.
