A worker inspects the first completed section of London’s new Crossrail tunnel, which will provide new train links across the UK capital to Heathrow airport. Tunnelling machine Phyllis completed the 6.8km section between Royal Oak in the west and central Farringdon after 18 months of work. Crossrail, Europe’s largest construction project, is expected to be finished in 2019.
