TIMELAPSE: HS2’s Euston tunnel portal site clearance

HS2 has successfully completed the demolition of the former carriage sheds at Euston station, revealing for the first time, the site of the approach tunnels for the new high speed rail link’s London terminal.

The work, a major milestone for the project, will help pave the way for the arrival of the specialist tunnelling teams on site next year. The demolition, which took nine months to complete was managed by HS2’s London enabling works contractor, CSJV working with demolitions contractor Keltbray.

Up to 70 people were employed on site during the painstaking demolition of the sheds, which are adjacent to the west coast mainline.
