Guide Tunnelling (Australia): Specific Hazards, Risks and Control Measures – Pipe Jacking Mobile App
Pipe jacking is mostly used in soft tunnelling conditions but may be carried out in rock.
How does it work?
The tunnel is lined with a pipe installed in sections, pushed or jacked into the increasing tunnel length from the portal. The support and lining is provided by the pipe. Some face support may be needed in extreme conditions. Control measures should be implemented to eliminate or minimise, so far as is reasonably practicable, the risks associated with pipe jacking. The Guide Tunnelling (Australia): Specific Hazards, Risks and Control Measures – Pipe Jacking mobile app includes specific hazards, risks and control measures - pipe jacking.
