Crossrail Tunnels Enter Final Stages

As TBM 'Elli'e begins her final journey, the ‘big fat ladies’ that have been driving tens of kilometres of tunnel deep under London will soon begin singing as they draw the tunnelling to a close.

They have earned the right to sing having completed on the largest tunnelling projects that have ever been done as part of a single project. Final tunnel progress is on schedule.

However, once completed, there is still extensive fitting out and construction works to be done along the route and stations to be completed.

Tunnel machine 'Ellie' has started her 900 metre journey from Limmo Peninsula, near Canning Town, towards Victoria Dock Portal in east London.

Over the next three months the 1,000 tonne machine will complete one of Crossrail’s shortest but most complex tunnels, in close proximity to the Jubilee line, Docklands Light Railway, River Thames and River Lea.

The drive will complete tunnelling on Crossrail’s southeast spur, which stretches from Stepney Green to Abbey Wood. Ellie’s sister tunnelling machine, Jessica, completed the first of the two twin-tunnels from Limmo to Victoria Dock earlier this summer.
