Background

Micro TBM tunnelling has progressively been introduced to the market in 1st world countries since the early 1990’s. South Africa, and Africa as a whole, has not had many opportunities to make use of such technology primarily due to cost. In the last decade however, and particularly in the past couple of years, this type of tunnelling has come to the fore with a number of tunnels which have been constructed using micro tunnelling. Because it is a relatively new method of construction in a South African context there is huge interest locally. A conference with Micro TBM Tunnelling should therefore be well received.
