Upcoming Concrete Pour at Chaplin Station - Saturday, July 18, 2020

July 17, 2020

What Work is Taking Place?

On Saturday July 18, 2020, a large concrete pour will take place at the Chaplin Station Main Entrance site.  900+ cubic metres of concrete will be poured into the station box underground to form an invert slab.  The invert slab will flatten the bottom of the tunnel so that track can eventually be laid.  Two concrete pumps will be placed within work zones and several concrete trucks will deliver concrete to the site every hour.  The pour will take approximately 14 hours to complete.


Hours of Work

  • Saturday July 18, 2020 beginning at 5:00 a.m. for approximately 14 hours
  • Work may be longer or shorter than expected, and may be rescheduled due to inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances
