Evergreen Line tunnel boring machine “Alice” christened in Port Moody

Premier Christy Clark was in Port Moody this morning along with the Transportation Minister and Federal Industry Minister to christen the tunnel boring machine and give an update on the project’s progress.

The 11 kilometre Skytrain expansion will link Coquitlam to the Millennium Line and is set to open in 2016.

It was announced today that the tunnel boring machine has been named “Alice,” after Alice Wilson, the first female geologist in Canada.

The 2 kilometre tunnel portion will run from east of the Barnet Highway in Port Moody to south of Kemsley Avenue in Coquitlam.

Once complete, the Evergreen Line will be the longest rapid transit system in Canada.

It will take 13 minutes to travel between Lougheed Town Centre and Coquitlam Centre on the Evergreen Line, and 40 minutes from Coquitlam Centre to downtown Vancouver.
