Video: Micro-tunnelling used in Wessex Water sewer project
A £5M Wessex Water scheme to help alleviate flooding on the Somerset coast has used a micro-tunnelling technique to minimise disruption to the local community.
The project in Brent Knoll and Burnham-on-Sea involves building a new sewage pumping station, installing several new sewers as well as making improvements to the existing sewerage system.
In this video produced by Wessex Water, we learn about the role of micro-tunnelling in the project, which is expected to be completed in October 2017.
