Burrowing machines coming to the GTA


Soon this little guy is going to have to make room as eight boring machines make their way to the GTA.

TTC chair Adam Giambrone at a news conference this morning said the machines are set to burrow under parts of the GTA within a few years. The machines will work on the Spadina subway extension and Eglinton LRT projects, turning the city into "one of the biggest production sites of tunnelling in the entire world," according to Giambrone. Indeed, one of the most prestigious titles a city can hold.

The Spadina machines will be delivered by the first quarter of 2011. Construction under Eglinton is scheduled to begin Spring 2012. Keep it in mind before making a silkscreen for "Toronto Earthquake 2.0."
