Permanent lining installation is carried out simultaneously; the contractors install an average of six concrete rings per shift or 1.4 equivalent meters of lining. Each ring is composed of seven reinforced concrete segments, which are installed by a tunnel lining machine.

The tunnel lining machine that is part of the Tunnelling System is controlled by an operator from a special control panel. The tunnelling is scheduled for completion in before the end of November 2012
