A small selection of the photographs on this web site showing progress towards the opening of the cutting.

This web site contains literally thousands of pictures showing progress of the extension.
To celebrate and to act as a taster we feature here just a few of these to give an idea of how the work progressed.
Please visit our index page to see all our other pictures in detail.

The first experimental extraction used a convoy of lorries
This is the end of the line on Feb 16th - next week, who knows? (see below)
February 2011 - the first line through the bridge (just visible, bottom right)
There was extra ballast in the wagons assigned to the first filling so these have to be emptied first before any proper work can start.
