On 8 December 2020, HS2’s first two Tunnel Boring Machines have arrived in the UK and will be ready to start work on the UK’s largest infrastructure project early next year.
The two 2,000 tonne machines - currently being manufactured in Germany - will dig the 10-mile-long Chiltern tunnels from the site next to the M25, to near South Heath in Buckinghamshire.
Today HS2 can proudly reveal the first images of our first two Tunnel Boring Machines set to launch on the project later this year.
