The TBM will launch from a vertical entry shaft on the Surrey side and progress north under the Fraser River to the vertical exit shaft on the New Westminster side. </p><p>Once the tunnel is drilled, a steel water main will be installed inside the new tunnel and connected to underground valve chambers at each shaft site, connecting it to the region's drinking water system.</p></div>
