Scottish Water has released drone footage of progress on the £100M Shieldhall Tunnel project.
The Glasgow Tunnel Partnership – a joint venture between Costain and Vinci Construction Grands Projets – is undertaking work to build the waste water tunnel, which is set to be the biggest in Scotland.
Preparatory work for the tunnel is underway and, following the start of tunnel boring works in the summer, the construction phase is expected to take more than a year to complete.
The video shows progress on the scheme, including the service shaft and launch chamber for the tunnel boring machine which has been constructed as part of a 200m-long cut and cover trench.
The project is part of Scottish Water’s £250m, five-year programme of work, launched in 2013, to improve river water quality and the natural environment and tackle flooding.
