Tunnelling: What You May Experience

Dear Neighbour:

As you may know, the Eglinton Crosstown is a 19-kilometre light rail transit that includes a 10-kilometre underground portion, between Keele Street and Laird Drive. For the tunneled 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 about 10 metres per day. TBMs are working about 20 metres below ground, but we do sometimes hear from nearby residents who may experience vibration from the TBMs as they pass through the area. Read more »
