Join the Alert Forward to Colleagues
From the Editor's Desk - 30 May 2019
After extensive drill+blast to establish working portals and early TBM works for the exploratory tunnels, its now time to start TBMs on the 60km of main running tunnel drives for the Brenner Base Tunnel project, with the first two now underway on the Mules Lot. To date 101km of the total 230km of mega project excavation is complete - 28km of the 120km of twin running tunnels; 39km of the 61km long exploratory tunnel; and 34km of 49km of logistical tunnels. Excavation is expected to be completed by 2027.
