Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
TBM Nancy has broken through a wall of rock at the site of the new Waterloo Station, the first tunnelling breakthrough of the Sydney Metro City and Southwest project.
The milestone occurs as Sydney Metro works to deliver twin new metro railway tunnels deep under the city.
Nancy is one of five TBMs building the 15.5km twin railway tunnels between Chatswood and Marrickville.
TBM Nancy started digging from Marrickville on 17 October 2018 and has since carved through about 304,000 tonnes of rock – enough to fill 47 swimming pools – building a 3.1km tunnel in less than six months.
Nancy will keep tunnelling to Barangaroo via new metro stations at Central, Pitt Street and Martin Place, delivering an 8.1km tunnel.
Her mega borer stablemate TBM Mum Shirl is doing the same and is a few hundred metres behind TBM Nancy in delivering their twin tunnels.
At Waterloo Station, it has taken tunnel builders John Holland CPB Ghella about twelve months to excavate about 323,000 tonnes of rock 26m deep to build the underground station ‘box’ prepare for TBM Nancy’s arrival.
