View west of the diveunder, photo from Noel Road bridge. There is a freight line on the far right, leading to one set of sidings. Then the diveunder. When complete there will be another freight line on the left of the diveunder, then two relief lines, then two main lines.
Acton Crossrail diveunder

A substantial number of freight trains, mainly with cement and aggregate, have to go from the London-bound goods lines into Acton Yard. This takes them across the line which will be used by eight crossrail trains per hour. To avoid disrupting Crossrail, its London-bound line is being put into a single-track tunnel under the freight lines. Westbound Crossrail will use one of the relief lines, eastbound will go through the diveunder.
