You may have seen our recent video about a project we’ve recently completed underneath the Newtonards Road Belfast. The project includes two drives totalling around 180m of 1200mm diameter, to form a part of the Flood Alleviation Scheme for NI Water.
We previously posted this footage sped up to four times normal as a timelapse, however, we wished to provide more insight into this lynchpin of the Trenchless Tunnelling industry, so we decided to talk you through what you’re seeing, pointing out the key aspects of the Pipe Jacking process.
With the footage coming from a live tunnelling job, you can clearly see Health & Safety features, including PPE, Lift plans in action and environmental protection methods at work.
To find out more about Pipe Jacking, or to engage Terra Solutions- The Trenchless Experts- to construct the tunnels or shafts your project needs please visit TerraSolutions.co.uk.
