BLACKALL RANGE TUNNEL

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The refurbishment of a 2500m long, 3.5m x 2.5m tunnel on the Sunshine Coast for SEQ Water showcases our tunnelling capabilities. Additional works include extension of a rail system, supply and installation of a Portal Protection System to protect personnel from rock falls and supply and installation of a communication system within the tunnel. Works commenced onsite mid-March and already the project is one week ahead of schedule due to planning in the pre-commencement phase and the exceptional performance by the site team.
