Crossrail Debris Is Used For New Wildlife Reserve

ROCHFORD, ENGLAND - JULY 13: A general view of the sign at Wallasea Island Reserve on July 13, 2015 near Rochford, England. Wallasea Island Wild Coast project has been created using around three million tonnes of soil excavated from the Crossrail Tunnel project, which has helped create Europe's largest man-made nature reserve. The construction is transforming the levee-protected farmland into a thriving wetland reserve twice the size of the City of London, as part of a 20 year plan. The site is managed by the RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) and hopes to attract an array of wildlife including Avocet, Redshank and lapwing, along with large flocks of Brent geese, Dunlin, Wigeon and Curlew.
