THE HS2 super-hub station at Old Oak Common is two years into construction today (23).

A workforce of 1,000 people is on site each day.

They have already installed 275 diaphragm wall panels and 161 bearing piles.

Excavated clay is now being taken away via part of a 1.7-mile conveyor network, removing thousands of lorry movements.

Piling began this year on the eight platforms that will be served by Great Western Mainline and Heathrow Express services. It will also become the 42nd stop on the Elizabeth Line.

Platform construction will start this year.

The team also demolished the Wycombe Line Bridge, over Old Oak Common Lane, at the end of May.

The disused rail bridge was removed following a weekend road closure, and makes way for the new Network Rail bridges which allow the Great Western track alignment to be widened as it approaches the new station.

This year, the eastern end of the site will be handed over for the breakthrough of the tunnel boring machine, named Lydia, which will have completed the logistics tunnel from the nearby Atlas Road site.

Two further tunnel machines will be delivered to Old Oak Common in 2024, ready to bore the five-mile Euston Tunnel.
