Sydney Metro Northwest – excavating tunnel alignment’s deepest point

September 10, 2019

Today we were more or less under Thompsons Corner on Pennant Hills Road, it’s taken an enormous effort to get to where we are today. We’ve reached the deepest point of the tunnel – we’re 58 metres underground. We’re two kilometres into the tunnel already and we’ve got just over 3.6km to go. We like enjoying and celebrating our milestones – today’s a big milestone. It’s a great feeling to share those milestones with the guys on the machine and similarly on the surface with all the support crew we’ve got. From this deepest point on she needs to keep going, keep going in the hard Sydney sandstone. We’ve got 3.6km to go before we reach our end destination at Epping.

    Good to see the end of this video has reverted back to the much better name SRT instead of the cheesy Sydney Metro name.

    So have they finished tunneling now. It would be good to know where they are up too and when rail services will start. Early 2019 is pretty vague.
