TBM "Yorkie" Crosses The Pond Road

October 29, 2012

Last December the Tunnel Boring Machine “Yorkie” started tunnelling operations from the launch shaft at the Steeles West Station site and began its path toward the Finch West Station site. Yorkie has completed the milestone of crossing under The Pond Road and is headed towards Keele Street. Yorkie has completed 80% of its first drive and is anticipated to be at our Finch West Station extraction shaft by December. You can follow the progress for “Holey”, “Moley” and “Yorkie, “Torkie” on our website under “Tunnelling Progress” and the neighbourhood maps “York University” and "Keele-Finch".
