Applying PIPEROOFING method in tunel construction – experiences
The progress of civilization and expansion of urban areas require improvement of the functioning of communication systems. In many cases, the only rational solution is to construct a tunnel and underground pass. However, when it is necessary to construct a short tunnel just to maintain communication continuity, it is beneficial to look for other solutions than the most popular tunnelling with TBM machines. An interesting solution is PIPEROOFING method thanks to which the construction can be executed quickly and the subsidence is minimalised. Speaker will present the idea behind the method as well as the example of its application.
