The Long Itchington Wood Tunnel is a 1.6km (1 mile), twin bore tunnel on the new high speed railway in Warwickshire.
The tunnel will run under Long Itchington Wood in Warwickshire – an ancient woodland – and is an important part of HS2’s environmental strategy to protect nature.
One tunnel boring machine (TBM), named Dorothy, is being used to create the tunnel and is the first TBM on the Midlands section of HS2.
Visitors have the chance to visit the North Portal of the Long Itchington Wood Tunnel. Here they will be able to see the model of TBM Dorothy at the visitor centre and look out at the site from the viewing platform
