Following the completion of Crossrail's tunnelling marathon under London we have published a new book that celebrates this major milestone for the project.
Teams of dedicated workers spent three years under the city to complete the tunnels, working with 1,000 tonnes boring machines and the latest engineering technology. With over 150 stunning photographs, explore how some of the deepest,largest and longest tunnels have been made in one of the most extensive underground building projects in a generation.
The tunnelling achievement of the Crossrail project has been the result of a huge extended family working with Crossrail to move London forward.
CROSSRAIL DOCUMENTARY: THE FIFTEEN BILLION POUND RAILWAY
The BBC three-part documentary series took the public behind the scenes of Europe’s largest infrastructure project as it constructs a new rail line through the heart of one of the world’s busiest cities.
BBC 2’s The Fifteen Billion Pound Railway first aired in summer 2014 and followed the construction of the new train tunnels and stations under London.
