HS2 and CSJV work to clear Old Oak Common ready for new High Speed rail link

News BBC commission our Old Oak Common time-lapse for special HS2 broadcast

3 September 2019 Kate

A SPECIAL BBC report from London’s HS2 developments features our specially commissioned progress edit from Old Oak Common.

Three of our camera systems are currently capturing developments at Old Oak Common Station – a new super-hub that is part of the ambitious government-backed High Speed 2 project.

A key part of Phase 1 of HS2, Old Oak Common will be the biggest sub-surface station to be built in the UK, standing at 1 kilometre in length and reaching 20 metres below ground level.

We are providing ongoing time-lapse as HS2 begins construction of the new west London railway station, having already completed remedial works to ready the site.

Our most recent time-lapse edit of these particular works cover the key stages of progress made so far since October 2018, including the demolition of the existing Old Oak Common depot.

This edit was requested for a special news report about the current progress of HS2, broadcast on BBC News at Ten at the end of August, as well as their online outlets. This was delivered to both the BBC and HS2 within a very tight timeframe, reflecting our dedicated editing team’s commitment to each & every client, and the success of our unique post-production techniques.

This is one of many our of HS2 commissions to be publicly spotlighted; just a few months’ ago our Euston Station time-lapse of excavation works at St James’s Gardens featured on local, national and international news outlets following the news of famous remains found on site.


Our time-lapse also continues to provide visual solutions for other government sites and online platforms about HS2.

The important developments at Old Oak Common and Euston are only two parts of the developing HS2 cluster works. We have many more camera systems currently in situ in other parts of London, as well as Birmingham and further planned installations to capture other areas of HS2.
