8 Stunning Images Of London's Gargantuan New Crossrail Tunnels
Crossrail isn't due to carry passengers across the capital until 2019 but its network of tunnels is 90% finished. And at the moment it looks like something from a sci-fi film.
Crossrail, the railway network linking east and west London, is years away from being finished, but its tunnels are almost done.
As you can see here, the tunnel where the platform will be at Bond Street Crossrail station is now finished.
The platforms at Bond Street will be 260 metres long.
Crossrail predicts that 220,000 passengers will use Bond Street Underground and Crossrail station on a daily basis.
The tunnelling, which has been taking place underneath the city 24 hours a day for the last two years, is coming to an end.
This 150-metre, 1,000-ton tunnelling machine, seen here at Whitechapel, is named Elizabeth. It's one of eight that have been used.
Crossrail estimates that 150,000 people a day will use Farringdon from 2019 for Crossrail, underground, and overground rail links.
Some 200,000 passengers a day are expected to use the Tottenham Court Road station, Crossrail says.
