TBM4 (諸葛亮) breakthrough at Stevens

At last, STEC's completed its final tunnel drive to Stevens. TBM4 has driven the EP bound tunnel from Newton and arrived 2 weeks after the lower TBM. Likewise all accessories will be extracted and removed via the launch shaft. Works on the FSC shall commence next, after which track laying by Alstom can proceed upwards to BTN. I'm guessing the slip road on the surface will be reinstated by Q2 next year after the launch shaft has been completely backfilled.
