Piling at Mount Pleasant (II)

Piling works have completed at the south launch shaft and the project team is preparing the site for excavation works. The priority now is to pile the north launch shaft - which will require a single slurry TBM to complete both bored tunnels toward Caldecott. The total tunnel excavation length is approximately 1.5km and would require about 2 years to complete.

Numerous handovers of the launch shafts would take place between the site's main contractor, adjacent T216 contractor as well as the trackwork contractor in the future. Delays are essential to be kept at minimum at every phase to prevent a snowball effect.

Photos in this update were taken on March 20.
