We received nearly 500 entries for the Tunnel Boring Machines (TBMs) Naming Contest! Thank you to everyone for their entries. Our selection committee has nominated six finalists and it’s time to vote for the winner. Visit our contest page to vote. Voting is open until November 21, 2012. The two entries with the most votes will win!

By the end of 2012, four 10.5-metre, 500-tonne TBMs will be delivered in Toronto. These TBMs will dig the tunnel underneath Eglinton Avenue for The Crosstown Light Rail Transit line. Four machines with such an important job deserve proper names, and we need your help naming them.
