Tunnel Boring Cross Rail Machine

Tunnel boring machines (TBM) were used in pairs to build cross rail tunnels. Mining tradition going back to the 1500s workforce prayed to the patron Saint Barbara of armourers, military engineers, tunnellers, gunsmiths and miners to protect them from dangers. The saint works against thunder and lighting and all accidents arising from explosions

 

The TBMS used for the Crossrail are also named after women
