The following video shows the moment when FAST Consortium’s ‘San’ah’ tunnel boring machine broke through at Riyadh Metro’s Salah Al-Din Station

FAST Consortium’s ‘San’ah’ tunnel boring machine (TBM) has arrived at Riyadh Metro’s Salah Al-Din Station.

The 2,000-tonne machine broke through after completing 1.2km of its designated 5km on Riyadh Metro’s Line 5.

The ‘San’ah’ unit began drilling on 30 June, 2015, and reached the station on 4 October, 2015.

The route drilled so far stretches from the Ministry of Education to Salah Al-Din Station, which is located between Orouba Road and King Abdullah Road. The ‘San’ah’ will continue to work on the northern section of Line 5 until it reaches Riyadh Airbase Roundabout, at which point it will meet with FAST Consortium’s second TBM, ‘Dhafrah’.

‘San’ah’s arrival at Salah Al-Din Station was witnessed by FAST Consortium and Arriyadh Development Authority employees, as well as residents of the district.

The following video shows the moment when ‘San’ah’ TBM broke through at Salah Al-Din Station.
