Crossrail has completed the construction of the first of its new train tunnels under London. It comes as Crossrail’s tunnelling machines reach the 13 mile point in their 26 mile marathon tunnel build.

Crossrail tunnelling machine Phyllis has finished the project’s first train tunnel, 17 months after commencing her 4.2 mile (6.8 km) journey from Royal Oak in west London and Farringdon in central London.
