SHOTCRETE AT MT PLEASANT STATION

Multi-million dollar underground stations are currently under construction on Metro and LRT lines in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

This construction method, while widely used, is not without its challenges.

Many of the underground station sites are in congested urban areas with limited spaces for laydown of concrete formwork, and crane access time for handling and installation of formwork is often on a critical path for completion of station construction.
