Stalactites at Bow Road Station

Stalactites at Bow Road station this morning. Why? Whenever I have visited caves, the tour guide tells us in awe that each painful inch of the rock formations takes millennia to accrete. So how come the ones on the girders at Bow Road station are about 6 inches long? Did man really build the London Underground before moving on to lesser projects such as the pyramids? I think someone is not telling us the full story here.
