TBM extraction from Queen Street shaft

TBM S-608 by Contract 921 reached the Queen Street reception shaft in September. After about a month of preparation, the TBM is finally ready to be lifted out of the shaft and transported back to the launch shaft at Rochor station to bore the Expo bound tunnel. The process involves lots of machinery on a tight footprint. Just take a look!
