HS2 has completed a set of major lifts of Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) components at its Victoria Road Crossover Box site, in Ealing, west London.

The TBMs will be used to dig the eastern half of the Northolt Tunnel – which will ultimately be used to take the new high-speed line between Old Oak Common station and outer London. They will complete a 3.4-mile stretch of the tunnel from Victoria Road to Greenford, beginning their journeys in the new year.
