Providing the Complex Infrastructure Needed to Build Better Communities

Burrows Road Tunnel

Abergeldie constructed an underground cable tunnel beginning in Campbell Road, running below Burrows Road, and finishing at the Energy Australia (EA)/ Transgrid substation in Alexandria. The tunnel carries 6 x 132kV circuits.

The project featured a launching shaft, an 87m long, 2800mm diameter, pipe jacked tunnel and a receiving shaft. The receiving pit featured 2 stages of construction, a temporary shaft to allow for the removal of an EPBM and further modifications to construct the final pit which sits within the EA boundary of the new substation.
