Great World Cast (II)

Preparations for the heavy lifting works for the lowering of the project's first Herrenknecht TBM is underway now with the arrival of the 1200t Demag mobile crane. Lowering of the TBM will be completed by Christmas and tunnelling works for the Woodlands bound drive to Orchard station should commence around the later part of 1Q17. Excavation works for the station have reached the first basement (roof) level and casting works are underway.
