Metro Tunnel

Construction hours for tunnels and stations

When main works to excavate the Metro Tunnel and build the five new stations begin, underground tunnelling works may occur up to 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Construction sites that support tunnelling activities may also operate around the clock. Under certain circumstances, above-ground works may be needed after hours. Neighbouring residents and businesses in each of these construction sites will be notified in advance of these works.

Construction hours will generally be Monday to Friday from 7am to 6pm, and Saturday 7am to 1pm.

Other out-of-hours works may be required in order to complete work safely or to reduce disruption on the road or rail network. This could include the delivery of oversized equipment or road closures needed to support construction activities.
