Microtunneling is a method used to construct tunnels without the need of manned entry. The tunneling machine and equipment are operated remotely. The operator is given constant feedback about the machine's location, orientation and hydraulic devices via a computer console. The operator can control the Microtunnel Boring Machine (MTBM) and the jacking frame from the safety of the control room.
