Crossrail releases drone footage of completed tunnels

Crossrail has released drone footage of its tunnel system, marking the completion of the tunnelling phase of the £14.8bn project.

Since May 2012, eight 1,000t tunnel boring machines (TBMs) have bored 42km of new 6.2m diameter tunnels under the capital.

The Crossrail programme is more than 65% complete and the construction focus will now shift to fitting out the new tunnels and stations.

The first Crossrail services through central London are scheduled to start in late 2018.
