Crossrail Site Visit

Wednesday 29th May 2013


A great opportunity for WTS Members to visit a live Crossrail site and see a Tunnel Boring Machine at Pudding Mill Lane DLR.  This very popular event booked up within 48 hours with limited places to visit this live site.  The member feedback from this great event speaks for itself:

“This was my first WTS event and I really enjoyed it. The other members were extremely friendly and from a varied range of backgrounds, which was very interesting. A great networking opportunity and chance to see a TBM up close. Thank you very much for organising.”

 “I enjoyed being given the opportunity to view the Crossrail project at close quarters. I felt very privileged to stand next to one of the tunnel boring machines as I know this is not something may people will be able to do.”

“The site visit was well organised, with a presentation and Q&A session with a tunnelling engineer before entering site. Very relaxed and informal visit, with the opportunity to ask lots of questions and take photos.”

“I thought we had an amazing opportunity to see the project. The team were really helpful and knowledgeable and it is such a massive project you need to see it up close!”

“The site engineer was very knowledgeable, he answered literally 100's of questions and took his time in explaining the detail and showing us around the site. Seeing the TBM was great and it would be good to see it in action as a follow up event.”

“I liked the opportunity to get access to a live construction site and be able to ask questions of very knowledgable people who gave their time to lead us around.”

“It was a great opportunity to see something usually closed off to the public, I really enjoyed it.”

WTS London is very grateful to the Crossrail team at Pudding Mill Lane for taking the time to provide our members with this fantastic opportunity and making the site visit such a success.
