Vancouver’s first underground line connecting the International Airport and the City completed in time for the 2010 Winter Olympics.

In this project, after the Athens and Turin underground, SELI Overseas confirmed itself as the most efficient, experienced company in the construction of underground lines in a short, set timeframe.

This ability was instrumental in being awarded this job and for its completion in time to put the line into service on schedule.
