Two TBMs have broken through key sections of the Metro Tunnel, marking the half-way mark of tunnelling on the ground-breaking project.
The first of the Metro Tunnel’s tunnel boring machines (TBMs) has broken through at Parkville Station in Victoria.
All four of the Metro Tunnel’s tunnel boring machines (TBMs) are now digging the project’s twin tunnels across Melbourne, with the launch of TBM Meg from the Arden site in North Melbourne

The first section of the Metro Tunnel is now complete – with the first tunnel boring machine, Joan, today breaking through to complete the journey from Arden Station to the tunnel’s western entrance in Kensington.
