Project Description

This work was part of a major project to provide flood relief for a number of households in the Paddington area by constructing new drainage infrastructure using trenchless methods, specifically a new DN2100 storm water drainage pipeline. Rob Carr Pty Ltd were engaged by Brisbane City Council to construct the stormwater pipeline. We modified and finalised the existing launch shaft to suit the tunnel boring machine and ancillary equipment. We constructed two tunnels (135m in length) from the segmental launch shaft using 2160mm OD GRP jacking pipe through high strength rock using a TCS1800 Iseki Tunnel Boring Machine.
