Event Type



Technical Visit to one of London Underground’s biggest projects – the Northern Line Extension (NLE) to Battersea.


A chance to see and learn how the team manages and undertakes the fist major Tube extension since the Jubilee Line Extension in 1999. The programme is currently well under way, the two tunnel boring machines (Helen and Amy) are currently excavating the new tunnels that will connect to the existing line at Kennington. Two new 3.2km tunnels and two new Tube stations will be built as part of the extension, targeted for completion in 2020.
This visit is free to YM IRSE members and non-members and has been kindly sponsored by the Northern Line Extension team at London Underground.
