TBM "Torkie" Crosses The Pond Road

November 2, 2012

Last February the Tunnel Boring Machine “Torkie” started tunnelling operations from the launch shaft at the Steeles West Station site and began its path toward the Finch West Station site. Torkie has completed the milestone of crossing under The Pond Road and is headed towards Keele Street. Torkie has completed 80% of its first drive and is anticipated to be at our Finch West Station extraction shaft by late November.
