Tunnel Construction

Tunnel construction requires safe working practices and to provide minimal disruption to both the environment and the community at large.

As a leader in the industry, Abergeldie have extensive tunnel construction experience.

In addition to the construction of pipe-jacked, lined tunnels and blind bored vertical shafts, Abergeldie’s tunnelling expertise and achievements include tunnel construction and reconstruction using more conventional excavation and boring methods.

Our rehabilitation of a rough-hewn, unlined tunnel carrying a water main from the Cotter Dam near Canberra earned a 2009 Civil Contractors Federation ACT Hitachi Earth Award.

Some of the tunnelling projects carried out by Abergeldie have included the following capabilities:

  • Main sewer construction
  • Pedestrian underpass design and construction
  • Tunnel restoration works
  • Tunnel stabilisation
  • Tunnel refurbishment.

Examples of some of our successful tunnel construction projects can be viewed below.
