Down inside Stratford Box. The steel tubes are horizontal struts to keep the side walls from caving in until permanent reinforced concrete struts are constructed.

Students facing the entrances to the tunnel headings for the tunnel drives to St Pancras Station. Each tunnelling machine will set off from the two side openings.

Looking up at the permanent reinforced concrete bracing.
