Graham Boanas makes history by walking over and under the River Humber through National Grid’s 5km tunnel. Watch from a unique perspective as Graham and National Grid’s project team make their way through the tunnel. The River Humber pipeline replacement project is set to break the record for the world’s longest hydraulically inserted pipeline.An interview with Steve Ellison, Lead Project Manager, National Grid
An interview with Steve Ellison, Lead Project Manager, who explains how ‘Mary’, the TBM has been digging a tunnel to house a replacement gas pipeline 30 metres beneath the River Humber. See the final leg of Mary’s journey on this project, as she is carefully lifted out of the shaft at Paull and prepared for her onward journey. B roll footage

After 18 months, we are finally able to see Mary, our Tunnel Boring Machine, again. The timelapse shows water in the shaft falling after Mary had completed an underwater tunnel breakthrough. Mary our TBM breaking through
Mary, our tunnel boring machine has just completed her 18-month journey digging a 5km tunnel to replace a gas pipeline 30 metres beneath the River Humber. Here she is in the specially constructed shaft at Paull on the north bank.Final ring time lapse video
Each ring is made up of six segments, installed by two ring builders. One operative controls the vacuum segment erector (lifting device) with the other operative guiding him using a measuring instrument. Once in place, it is bolted to the adjacent segments that form the ring. On completion of the ring, the TBM moves forward by using thrust rams.Modelled fly through of the Humber River pipeline tunnel
The flythrough begins at Goxhill, the site for the TBM’s (Tunnel Boring Machine) launch shaft, which now serves as the main entrance of the tunnel. It then zooms across the River Humber, giving us a birds eye view of the tunnel, finally arriving at Paull, at the reception shaft, which is where the TBM has broken through.
