Tunnelling: What you may experience

Dear Neighbour:

As you may know, the Eglinton Crosstown includes a 10-kilometre underground portion, between Keele Street and Laird Drive.For the tunnelled portion, we have tunnel boring machines (TBMs) operating around the clock - 24 hours a day, seven days week.

On average, the tunnel boring machines each travel approximately 10-15 metres per day. TBMs are working approximately 16-20 metres below ground, but we sometimes hear from nearby residents who may experience noise and vibration from the TBMs as they pass through the area. Read more »
