Tunnels Australia

Abergeldie is a tunnelling and underground specialist with expertise in water, wastewater, and stormwater sectors using state-of-the-art technology. We construct deep pipelines in a wide range of complex geotechnical and conditions using a variety of techniques for ground support and stabilisation.

The Abergeldie Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) fleet caters for a broad range of geological conditions from soft ground Earth Pressure Balance Machines (EPBMs), to mixed ground slurry machines capable of tunnelling through running sand and hard rock or gripper/main beam TBMs for hard rock conditions.

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.

Most recent projects include the Kalkallo Trunk Sewer Main in Victoria and the Bulimba Sewer Trunk Main  project in Queensland.

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.
