Commencing TBM Assembly for Broadway Subway in Vancouver

Broadway Subway TBM Parts

While the 2nd and final shipment of TBM parts for the Broadway Subway Project arrived at the end of May, currently assembly of the first TBM is undergoing at the future GNW-Emily Carr Station site. Locating behind the cutterhead, on 14 June 2022 the bottom of the TBM’s front shield was placed into a concrete cradle as the machine starts to take shape.

Each of these TBMs, with around 1000 t weight, are going to be assembled 1 at a time at the GNW – Emily Carr Station site and started up separately in order to create 2 tunnels about 5 km long for the project
