About HS2 Euston Approaches

HS2 is a new high speed railway linking up London, the Midlands, the North and Scotland serving over 25 stations, including eight of Britain’s 10 largest cities and connecting around 30 million people.

The construction of the new railway is split into three phases – Phase One linking London and the West Midlands; Phase 2a linking the West Midlands and the North via Crewe; and Phase 2b completing the railway to Manchester and Leeds.

The Euston approaches are the sections of the track connecting tunnels to Euston Station. Two tunnel boring machines (TBMs) will dig the 8-mile journey between Euston and Old Oak Common.

SCS is a joint venture between three companies: Skanska, Costain and STRABAG (SCS). Together they are working to deliver the London Tunnels of HS2. This covers the portion of the journey from Northolt to Euston, via Old Oak Common. In order to achieve this, SCS will be operating seven tunnel boring machines (TBMs) to dig the 21km of tunnel required over the southern section of HS2.
