Tagore Cast (II)

The completion of the first bored tunnel for the Thomson Line is coming up within the T208 project. The drive executed by TBM C for the northbound tunnel between the Tagore C&C and Lentor Station is over 90% completed. Maintaining an advance of an average of close to 8 rings per day since the start of the year, excavation of the tunnel is envisaged to complete by the middle of March.

The replacement cutterhead and TBM shield for TBM C has already been positioned at the surface of the north launch shaft in preparations for the second drive towards Springleaf.
