Tunnelling works for Stage 1 of the line will be completed by next month with the final 100m long Woodlands bound tunnel being driven between LS2 and Woodlands South station. Concurrently, the twin TBMs from Springleaf will breakthrough at the RTS Facility Building, completing the longest mainline drives (2km) under the TEL project.
