Jessica takes High Road

After surfacing at Stepney Green, Tunnel Boring Machine Jessica, travelled by road to her next job at Canning Town.

To make the trip, Jessica was dismantled, lifted out in pieces by crane, loaded onto flatbed trailers and transported to Stepney in a series of carefully managed operations with the help of local police.

Jessica completed her 2.7 kilometre tunnel drive from Pudding Mill Lane to one of Europe’s largest mined caverns at Stepney Green three months ago. She was re-assembled at Limmo Peninsula and put back to work constructing the final Crossrail tunnel between Limmo and Victoria Dock Portal.
