Passing The Completed Acton Dive-Under

I took these pictures as I passed the Acton Dive-Under going towards Paddington.

It looks substantially complete.

The dive-under is on the Slow Line into Paddington, soon after Ealing Broadway station.

It was a very clever piece of engineering to create the Acton Dive-Under in the middle of a working railway with trains passing on either side.

I’m certain, there are other places on the UK’s rail network, where a similar technique can be used to sort out places, where two rail lines need to cross each other.
