More than 23 miles (nearly 90%) of train tunnels are now complete, with tunnelling due to finish in spring 2015. Six of Crossrail’s eight tunnelling machines have now completed their drives. The construction of ten new stations in central and southeast London is more than half complete.

The surface works, delivered by Network Rail, are well underway.

Andrew Wolstenholme, Crossrail Chief Executive said: “Crossrail is being delivered on time and on budget. These fantastic images show the scale of work taking place around the clock beneath the streets of London. We are on schedule to provide London and the South East with a fantastic new railway in 2018.”
