Tunnelling Solutions is proud to be associated with the Victorian Government's Level Crossing Removal Program and is currently excavating works under Darebin Street as part of the Hurstbridge Link Track Duplication.

The new 70m tunnel is next to the historic Darebin Street Tunnel which was erected around 100 years ago.  

Tunnelling Solutions has recently purchased some specialised tunnelling equipment - Akkermann 240A GBM and Butor TEM74E.

Tunnelling Solutions has recently purchased an Akkerman 240A Guided Boring Machine for the installation of large diameter Canopy Tubes for the Norwest Pedestrian Tunnel.   They have also purchased an Electric Butor Tunnel Excavator from Metalliance in France. 

This type of equipment requires extensive training for safe and efficient operation and will also reduce any learning curve on the project.

Tunnelling Solutions has just been awarded a tunnel project in Melbourne and are looking for candidates with tunnelling experience to start mid September.  Please submit your resume through the Contact page.

From Monday 30 January 2017, Tunnelling Solutions Melbourne Head Office will be relocated to  1/241 Blackburn Rd, Mt Waverley Vic 3147

Northwest Rapid Transit (NRT) has awarded Tunnelling Solutions the contract to build the underground Norwest pedestrian link on the $8.3 billion Sydney Metro Northwest project.

The pedestrian link will be constructed under Norwest Boulevard to provide a second pedestrian entry point to Norwest Station from the retail and business precincts.

The team at Tunnelling Solutions are excited to be a part of this project and are well equipped to provide first class technical input to this challenging work.

Existing cable anchors and rock support need to be removed from the alignment of the tunnel within the station box prior to the team installing 15, 40m long canopy tubes which are 350mm in diameter.  The shaft and tunnel will be excavated and lined using permanent shotcrete with a spray on waterproof membrane sandwiched within the tunnel lining.


The Tunnelling Solutions team are looking forward to working with the NRT team to deliver this section of the project.
