The Hole Boring Machine is on the Move-Diane Plant

Toronto is undergoing the building of a Light Transit System which is both and underground and above ground route along Eglinton Ave. It commenced in the West end and is progressing underground along Eglinton Ave. in 2013 at Black Creek and will hit Yonge St in 2016.

Last night we witnessed history in Toronto. The hole boring machine was moved from the east side of the Allen Rd to the west side on Eglinton Ave. It was witnessed by hundreds of people who were lucky enough to live close enough.

It was raised from the tunnel underground by this machine.


The hole boring machine weighs in at 400 tons. It was loaded onto a flatbed truck that was remotely operated.
