Just a few photos taken the other day when out rambling last week.
Over at the Limmo Peninsular, where two tunnel boring machines have been sent off towards Canary Wharf, what was a site occupied by digging down two huge shafts in the ground, is now a marshalling yard for concrete segments going down, and soil coming back up.
While I was there, in just a few minutes, three truck loads of concrete passed the site, and the two huge gantry cranes were busy shifting big stacks of future tunnel linings.
A little further to the East is the Connaught Tunnel.
Here, they have had to block off a small section of canal that links two docks and are excavating the bottom of the dock out to reveal the roof of the old Victorian tunnel that runs underneath it.
I have recounted the whats and whys of that already.
A worker I shouted a question to thinks it will take about 4 weeks to reach the top of the tunnel, which seems a long time to me, but maybe they are being very careful with the last metre or so of digging?
