An Overview
The construction of a new tunnel and within the existing dis-used Victorian brick-lined railway tunnels running under the Connaught Passage which connects the Royal Victoria Dock to the Prince Albert Dock. This work was the key stone part of the Crossrail C315 contract to provide Crossrail trains with enough clearance to be able to pass through the existing section. The work involved the demolition of the existing Victorian built brick invert and concreting a new slab, working in bays and the installation of a new concrete in-situ lining to the full length of the dock tunnel.
