From Tunnelling To Tracks

Crossrail Marks The Arrival Of 465 Metre Long Concreting Train

Crossrail, Europe's largest infrastructure project, has welcomed a 465 metre long concreting train which will help fit-out the Crossrail tunnels with concrete to enable tracks to be laid.

The train's arrival at the Plumstead railhead in southeast London heralds the next major stage for the project following the end of tunnelling.

The bright yellow train – which was refurbished and brought to the UK from France via the Channel Tunnel, is as long as four football pitches when fully assembled and is a self-contained concrete batching factory on wheels.
