Our tunnel boring machine (TBM) Selina started her 5.5km journey from Chambers Wharf in early 2021. In April 2022, Selina reached her last stop at Abbey Mills Pumping Station, marking the end of tunneling for the super sewer. The tunnel boring machine has now been removed from the shaft and transported off site.
Until Summer 2023, 24-hour working is taking place as we add a secondary lining of concrete onto the inside of the tunnel. A batching plant has also been set up to supply the concrete.
You can learn more about our Abbey Mills site by watching our Tunnel Vision episode on YouTube.
