Tunneling Works :

Tunneling is the best solution to overcome problems of Open cut excavation in the crowded and heavy traffic areas and also deal with lots of underground utilities. Tunneling designed to work in deep areas below the underground water level to avoid the risk of dewatering which affects the surrounding buildings.

All tunneling activities are controlled automatically from the control unit beside the cutting head or the cabinet on top of the ground level.
