Video | HS2 TBM breaks through at Old Oak Common

A tunnel boring machine (TBM) named Lydia has finished digging an 853m long tunnel into HS2 Old Oak station.

The operation completed the construction of the Atlas Road Logistics Tunnel.

HS2’s London tunnels contractor, the Skanska Costain Strabag joint venture (SCS JV), constructed the logistics tunnel using a TBM made from components repurposed from a machine previously used to construct London’s Elizabeth Line.
