WATCH: TBM reaches milestone in Melbourne

City West Water (CWW) and Rob Carr have reached another milestone on Melbourne’s CBD Sewer Augmentation Stage 2A Project.

The project’s tunnel boring machine (TBM) – supplied by Rob Carr – has just completed its 550 m journey from the 23 m deep launch shaft on Lonsdale Street to conclude at the Elizabeth Street shaft.

The Rob Carr and CWW project team will now continue work onsite and commence preparations to launch the TMB from the same launch shaft.

Once launched, the TBM will head 350 m back towards the Spencer Street reception shaft located in the opposite direction.
