Stevens - TBM 2 Completes

Excavation works for the Woodlands bound tunnel from Mount Pleasant to Stevens completed today with the docking of TBM 2 outside the d-wall of the station. The NFM slurry machine was launched in September 2016, having spent the last 2 years completing the 1.44km tunnel drive. The final month of tunnelling works proceeded cautiously between the stacked DTL tunnels, as well as beneath the Wayang Satu Flyover and Bukit Timah Canal.

Its sister machine is approximately 100m behind and is similarly scheduled to dock at the station next month.
