Video | Arrival of concreting train heralds next phase of Crossrail scheme

A 465m-long concreting train has arrived to help deliver the next stage of the £14.5bn Crossrail scheme.

The distinctive yellow train came over from France through the Channel Tunnel and acts as a mobile concrete batching plant.

It will start on Crossrail duties in September following completion of a three-year tunnelling phase that saw 41km of underground space created for the trans-London rail scheme.

In this video, Crossrail programme director Simon Wright explains what the concreting train will do for the project.
