Students visit the Crossrail site C305 at Limmo Peninsula

Right is a group picture of a site visit made in June this year by Scholars to the Crossrail site C305 at Limmo Peninsula.

 

This visit and others like it are part of various different social and site visits we arrange during the year. This particular visit provided Scholars with an insight into one of the most prominent projects of the moment.  It allowed the students to appreciate how a site is organised and managed, and also help to gain an understanding of the safety aspects of designing a structure that is safe to build.



The C305 package - tunnels East comprises the construction of twin 6.2m diameter bored tunnels from:
• a launch chamber at Limmo Peninsular through to the new Crossrail Farringdon station, length of drive approximately 8.3km;
• a launch chamber at Stepney Green through to Pudding Mill Lane Portal, length of drive approximately 2.7km; and
• a launch chamber at Limmo Peninsular through to Victoria Dock Portal, length of drive approximately 0.9km
