Homeowner clears legal hurdle in bid to stop ‘catastrophic’ Euston tunnel design


Judith Martin's comment brings to mind an incident on the 8th of March 2013 when a train driver in the Network Rail tunnel between Old Street and Essex Road reported water ingress - and the driver of an empty train, on being asked to slow down to investigate, found that two 2m long sections of a pile boring auger had chewed through the cast iron tunnel lining and fallen onto the track. It transpired that about half the piles for a development 13m above the crown of the tunnel would have intersected with it had they all been constructed.
