Video: see the Crossrail tunnels underneath the Barbican

Posted at 6:15 pm, April 8, 2015 in Transport

It could be happening beneath your feet right now! Yes, Crossrail’s trusty boring machines are tunneling away 24 hours a day and you’ve probably walked over one of them recently without realising. Well the folks over at the Barbican knew exactly when those boring old machines Elizabeth and Victoria were passing below the Barbican Estate and they made ‘Pipe Dreams’ to celebrate. They were given access to film in the tunnels between Liverpool Street and Farringdon and they mixed up the underground footage with 2,000 frames of hand-drawn animation by Daniela Sherer with music by LoneLady. Lovely stuff!

Remember when…

Crossrail discovered 5,000 human remains under Liverpool Street 

Crossrail tunnels looked like an awesome sci-fi movie

Crossrail made house prises jump up by 50 percent
