Farnworth Tunnel

'Fillie' the tunnel boring machine has completed its mission and now rests outside the northern portal of the Farnworth tunnel on 31 October 2015. Engineers have started the dismantling process with the large crane behind lifting sections out of the cutting. Access to take this photo was by kind invitation of the family who have been neighbours of the worksite for the last 6 months.
