Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We need your help to name the Micro Tunnel Boring Machine (MTBM) to be used on METRONET’s Thornlie-Cockburn Link project.

In honour of Saint Barbara, the patron saint of underground workers, it’s an industry good luck tradition to give a female name to tunnel boring machines.

We’re opening it up to the community to come up with an appropriate and creative name for our latest tunnel boring machine, which will drill twin 100m tunnels under the freight rail corridor near the Ranford Road Bridge for a major water main.

Entries close on 26 July, and the winning name will be announced by Transport Minister Rita Saffioti.
