On 4 May 2015 a group of construction students (and several staff) were given the opportunity to visit the Crossrail development taking place at Woolwich. The visit included a walk through the tunnel under the Thames which will link Crossrail with Woolwich. The tunnel is soon to be fitted out with tracks and equipment so it really was a very unique experience.
