This appeared on the Metro tunnel website update dated May 3. Part of the detail on tunnelling says 3 of the 4 TBMs are now at the Town Hall station. The tracker which always lags behind says only 2 but that's not unusual. I'm guessing a press release shortly. ??

No, one more is still working its way from State Library to Town Hall. Nearly there perhaps at the end of the month.
