Sheppard Subway's First Tunnel Breakthrough

Item supplied by Aaron Adel
Transit Toronto News Archive - September 28, 1998

The first Sheppard subway tunnel boring machine (TBM) will break through to a shaft at Doris Avenue, just east of Yonge Street, tomorrow, Tuesday, September 29.

Tunnelling began last October from near Leslie Street with the TBM in the north tunnel kicking off first followed by the south tunnel TBM. As the machines complete their work from Leslie to Yonge, they will be brought to the surface and carried to a site just east of Leslie from which they will begin tunnelling to Don Mills Road.
