A significant milestone was hit last year on Europe’s biggest infrastructure project with the official completion of the permanent track for the Elizabeth line – London’s newest railway. More than 1,000 workers have installed the 63,000 sleepers, 51,419 metres of rail and over 800 sections of Long Welded Rail (LWR) which make up the new 50+ kilometres of Elizabeth line track. Over 13,500 m3 of concrete – enough to fill several Olympic sized swimming pools, was poured by the concreting train as part of the track installation. Watch this video to go on a journey through new tunnels between Plumstead in southeast London to Royal Oak in the northwest. The Transport for London (TfL) run railway will be named the Elizabeth line when services through central London open in December 2018.
