Outram Park - Tunnelling Completes

Tunnelling works for the T222 project have completed following the breakthrough of the third drive (TBM 1 refurbished) along the Woodlands Bound tunnel on Apr 27 and the fourth drive (TBM 2 refurbished) along the Changi Bound tunnel on Jun 21 between Outram Park and Havelock Station (800m).

This is the final tunnel to be completed under the C4 team, and the second final project along the overall line to complete bored tunnel excavation works.

Shenton Way - Tunnelling Completes

Bored tunnel works for the T225 project completed in the early hours of today with the docking of TBM 2 at Maxwell station. Tunnelling works were unique in this project due to the stacked configuration of the 2 launch shafts, one of which is within the permanent structure of the station. Geological constraints were also experienced beneath McCallum St resulting in prolonged delays and the eventual re-sequencing of the TBM drives.

T225 is the 3rd last team to complete tunnelling works for the line, ahead of T222 later this month and subsequently T216 in Q4.
