The giant tunnel that will house the new John Hart Generating Station has been completed.

According to a CBC News report, it has taken 13 months to complete the excavation, with nearly 500 detonations needed to help efforts to remove the rock. The eight-metre wide tunnel is approximately 93 metres wide and up to 10-storeys deep.

Once completed, the new generating station is scheduled to produce 132 MW of power, enough to power up to 80,000 homes on Vancouver Island.

The $1 billion is scheduled for completion for the fall of 2018.
