Giant tunneling machines (Video)

Crossrail, a 118-kilometre (73-mile) railway line under development, uses eight tunnel boring machines (TBMs) to construct the new tunnels under London.

These huge machines will work 24 hours a day beneath the streets of London, excavating large volumes of ground and erecting the concrete tunnel lining.
