Old Oak Common provides Crossrail tunnel segments

Link to Crossrail web site

"The new tunnel segment manufacturing facility at Old Oak Common has begun full operations, pouring the first batch of 250,000 concrete segments that will line 42km (26 miles) of Crossrail tunnels.

The facility will employ about 60 people at its peak, including the first of 15 trainees and apprentices, some of whom have been unemployed for up to 12 months.

They are among the first group of apprentices and trainees to receive training at the new Tunnelling and Underground Construction Academy (TUCA) – a facility near Ilford station that will not only train up to 3,500 people to work on Crossrail, but will also continue to operate well beyond the Crossrail project, and help the UK become a world leader in tunnelling construction."
