Tunnel Boring Update!
Tunnel boring machines Holey and Moley completed the southern tunnels in early March of 2013, drilling a total of 2.8 kms of twin tunnels and placed 1,826 rings. Yorkie and Torkie are boring the northern tunnels and Yorkie has now completed its drive arriving on October 7, 2013 at the Vaughan Metropolitan Station. Torkie (above) is drilling from the Highway 407 launch shaft toward Vaughan Metropolitan Station and is making excellent progress. Twin tunnelling should be completed before the end of the year.
