Crossrail tunnelling - 360° image gallery

Our gallery below allows you to explore behind the hoardings and beneath the streets of London in stunning 360° panoramic imagery, captured during the construction of the rail and platform tunnels.


This video gives passengers a unique opportunity to explore Crossrail’s recently completed tunnels 40 metres below their feet.

The interactive 360° video was shot from the front of one of Crossrail’s construction locomotives as it journeyed from Stepney Green cavern to Farringdon. The construction locomotives were used to carry people and materials through the tunnels.
