Tunneling started on 13th October but had to stop again on October 15th because of a risk that was identified in the stability of the backstop (the deep piled structure that provides the resistance to the horizontal pipe jacking forces). Additional restraint in the form of ground anchors were installed to ensure that the backstop remained solid and this remedial work was finished on October 20th. Tunneling resumed on October 20th and has been proceeding surely but steadily since then. The head of the tunnel machine has now travelled across the full width of Prince of Wales Drive and is now entering the embankment on the east side of POW Drive. In other words, the tunnel is about 2/3 complete and we are hoping that the tunnel machine will “daylight” on the other side of the embankment early next week. Here are a few recent pictures that show the tunneling operation:
As stated previously, this project is behind schedule, predominantly as a result of the extended timelines taken by the Contractor to submit acceptable work procedures. However, I’m pleased to report that we are making good progress with the tunnel, which is a major item in the contract. Once the tunnel is completed, the focus will be on lining the existing culvert with a new pipe (to create a twin-pipe configuration) and building the concrete headwalls. Our aim is to complete these major components before the end of the year so that full hydraulic capacity in the creek is restored, and then to complete the surface restoration and landscaping in the spring.
We have not received any inquiries from residents in the vicinity of the site and our field observations during the night shift have shown that the noise levels at the nearby homes is not disruptive and in fact no louder than the traffic that travels along POW Drive.
