ABB starts to make "The London Connection"

The £40m ($73.7m) turnkey project, known as ‘The London Connection’, is part of National Grid’s programme to upgrade the power grid for North West London and the City area. Running in a 20km long three-metre diameter tunnel – the largest tunnelling project that National Grid has ever undertaken- the cable will link a new substation at Elstree to the new indoor high-voltage GIS (gas insulated switchgear) substation that ABB has been building at St John’s Wood.
