Workers install a new water main (blue pipe) under the Trans Mountain pipeline next to Park Drive on Thursday, July 27. Relocating the water main will allow Trans Mountain to cross both the water and sewer pipes in one boring operation once the planned pipeline twinning gets underway.

Work continues on upgrades to water and sewer lines under Robson Street

 

Workers use hand shovesl, an excavator and (in background) a hydrovac to prepare a trench to re-locate the water main that runs along Park Drive (visible on the left). Hydrovac uses high pressure water and a vacuum system to dig holes. The project is one of several being done near the intersection with Robson Street.
