A lesson from Crossrail – what construction really looks like

Cross Rail visit – members of Hillingdon Against HS2, requested a visit to an actual construction and tunnelling site in 2012 and 2013. After chasing and chasing and chasing Hs2 Ltd. in May 2014 the visit finally took place. It was very upsetting to see the scale of the construction, and the proximity to homes, some of which is similar to what will take place in Hillingdon. See the Stop HS2 article about it here.

Here are some pictures of how construction looks in reality, rather than the couple of pretty bollards and a few traffic lights some residents have been shown in meetings.
