VICTORIA — She’ll be coming through the wall when she comes.
Phyllis the tunnel-boring machine carving out one of two tunnels to accommodate the Broadway Subway Project has broken through at the future Broadway-City Hall Station.
Since launching in November 2022, Phyllis has excavated 1,350 metres of tunnel and installed 884 liner rings, according to a news release.
The Broadway-City Hall Station is the deepest on the route at more than 20 metres underground and stretches 210 metres over two blocks between Alberta and Cambie streets.
“Progress continues to be made at the elevated guideway where crews are installing the deck on top of the completed girders that connect the 21 columns between VCC-Clark Station and the future Great Northern Way-Emily Carr Station,” writes the province in its release.
“Construction is also ongoing at all six station locations with activities ranging from excavation, concrete pours, waterproofing, rebar installation and station wall construction.”
