This project involved working in a very congested area on Lakeshore Road at Bathurst St. in downtown Toronto.   Somerville was contracted to drill in 295m of NPS20 pipeline under Lakeshore Rd and crossing Bathurst St.  The bore was completed in 23 days from start to finish, completing the job on time.  While the project was not large in length, the traffic congestion, space restrictions and project contraints on this project demanded efficient planning , co-ordination and scheduling.    Project was completed with minimal disruption or issues.
