A Crossrail TBM has broken through into the Canary Wharf station box, a major milestone for the project.
The breakthrough marks the completion of 12km of tunnels so far, a third of the project’s total.
“The Canary Wharf tunnelling breakthrough is our biggest milestone so far and a symbolic moment that shows the scale of the essential new transport links Crossrail is delivering,” said Crossrail chief executive Andrew Wolstenholme. “We are making good progress in building world-class new stations and a marathon of tunnels beneath London with the entire Crossrail project now more than a third complete.”
