Rapid Transit Expansion Program (RTEP), Toronto, Ontario

The overall program consisted of a number of fixed facilities, including stations, tunnels, cut and cover running structures, yards and shops constructed in the glacial deposits. There were four extensions planned with a total length of 18.7 km (11.6 miles): Eglinton West, Sheppard Subway, Spadina York University Extension and Scarborough RT Extension. Only Sheppard Subway was constructed at that time using Lovat EPB TBM - Earth Pressure Balance - Tunnel Boring Machine, followed immediately by lining with precast concrete tunnel liners.

Abu Hamour (Musaimeer) Surface & Ground Water Drainage Tunnel, Phase I , Doha Qatar

Design, construction and commissioning of 9.5 km, 3.7 m ID, TBM mined tunnel and 23 shafts. Most of the shafts are offline therefore requiring the construction of 18 adits up to 4 m (13 ft) long and application of sequential excavation tunneling methods (SEM/NATM). The tunnel is supported by unbolted/doweled steel fiber reinforced concrete segmental lining.

West Area CSO Storage Tunnel Facilities, Atlanta, GA

About 50,000 feet (15.2km) of 27 (8.2m) to 30 ft (9.1m) diameter storage and conveyance tunnels were bored at depths up to 150 (45m) to 300 feet (90m) below ground surface in hard rock. Four shafts 40 ft (12m) in diameter, one overflow shaft, three open cut intake structures (vortex shafts) and pump station were also constructed.

Eastern Transmission Reinforcement Phase 2, South Bound Brook, NJ

The extension of a 72-inch (1.8m) transmission main from South Bound Brook to Middlesex Borough was installed in a 1,200-foot (365m) 8.5-foot (2.5m) diameter tunnel was constructed using Lovat TBM with the drive occurring in water bearing contaminated ground to carry the transmission main and will cross beneath the D&R Canal, the D&R State Park and the Raritan River. Two shafts 34-foot (10.4m) and 16-foot (4.9m) were constructed using mechanical methods and blasting to facilitate access to the tunnel.
