Project Summary

VEDA devised a microtunnelling solution for a drainage pipe running under rail track in Primrose Hill, North West London. The UTX (under track crossing) was designed to encase a new 225mm diameter carrier pipe for managing ground water run-off and preventing rail track flooding. The boring of the 14-metre long tunnel was completed with a microtunnelling machine using remote technology.
