Retrieval of S693

Following its breakthrough 2 weeks ago, the cutterhead of the final Herrenknecht TBM was lifted out of the retrieval shaft at Tai Seng Facility Building (junction of Airport Road & Bartley Road East) a day before New Year's Eve. This is the last TBM for the Downtown Line to be retrieved, with the shields of the remaining 4 machines to be abandoned in-situ upon docking.
