Canada Line workers prepare tunnel boring machine for trip to Russia

The 440-tonne tunnel boring machine that played a key role in Metro Vancouver’s $1.9-billion rapid transit expansion project is getting ready to leave the country.

Now that it’s finished boring tunnels under False Creek and buildings in the downtown core, all places where man-made obstructions prevented construction from the surface, it must be disassembled and prepared for shipment to a new project in Russia. That part of the job will take another month.
