Elizabeth Arrives In
The City Of London

Deep underneath London, Europe’s largest construction project will soon enter the second stage. Eight Herrenknecht tunnel boring machines have for several years driven many kilometres of tunnel providing a link from the west to the east of London.
     Tunnelling is now virtually complete and the focus moves to fitting our and building the new platforms and access from street level.

The Crossrail route will serve 40 stations and run more than 100 km from Reading and Heathrow in the west, through new twin-bore 21 km (13 miles) tunnels below central London to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east.

unnel machine Elizabeth, named after HM The Queen, successfully broke in to the eastern end of Liverpool Street Crossrail station at the end of January 2015.      When Crossrail opens, it will increase London’s rail-based transport capacity by 10%, supporting regeneration and cutting journey times across the city. Crossrail services are due to commence through central London in 2018.
