The demolition of the buildings required for the western (Moorgate) ticket ticket hall began in March 2011. The demolition of the building known as 91-109 Moorgate is now complete and the demolition of part of the building known as 17-31 Moorfields will be complete at the end of October 2011.
These works are required to clear the sites where a new Crossrail ticket hall and shaft will be built. The gallery below show the demolition sequence at the Moorgate worksite since March 2011.

Utilities diversions are being carried out in Moorgate, Moorfields, Moor Place, London Wall and Fore Street to make way for the construction of the new ticket hall. This has resulted in some bus diversions - for more information on bus services please see the TfL Website.
Preparations are underway for the excavation of the Moorgate shaft. This will involve a change to the hoardings lines, which will extend southwards into the pedestrianised area in front of Moor House, and from 1 October will block the pedestrian route between London Wall and Moorfields entrance to Moorgate tube. A pedestrian diversion route is in place along Moorgate and Moor Place.
