It is the largest building project in Europe today, buried deep beneath the metropolis of London. The great scheme for Crossrail, offering high-speed links across the capital, has been a dream on planners' desks for decades, but is fast becoming a reality, as the tunnelling and earth-shifting machines have moved inexorably, like underground monsters, from opposing directions to their final meeting point. Soon the hoardings that guard the surface works will make way for light-filled stations, and the 'Elizabeth line' will be complete. Focusing on key Crossrail points, Gillian Tindall traces the course of the new line which is also the route of countless long-past journeys in and out of the capital.
