At the end of 2018, London's biggest engineering project will come to fruition. It has taken three-quarters of a century and cost £15 billion. For the first time, trains will run through tunnels built under central London between Paddington and Liverpool Street. Driving through a subterranean world of rock and mud;employing digital technology at the extreme cutting edge;and realising a vision of east-west metropolitan access conceived in the era of Attlee and Churchill – Crossrail is an engineering marvel of the twenty-first century.
In The Story of Crossrail, Christian Wolmar outlines the postwar history of the idea of a trans-London east-west railway line to the passing of the Crossrail Act of 2008 and describes the lengthy, complex – and extraordinary – engineering processes that will bring the new line into being.
