Crossrail dismantling

A workman starts to dismantle Crossrail’s final tunnelling machine, Victoria, 40 metres below Farringdon in central London, following the completion of Crossrail tunnelling.

Victoria’s 130m trailer is being removed via the shaft at Stepney Green and returned to manufacturer Herrenknecht, with parts recycled for future tunnelling projects.

The cutter head is being cut into small pieces and removed from Farringdon.
