Computerised jumbos ensure precision
The Cheung Tsing Tunnel is Hong Kong’s first three-lane twin tube tunnel. It runs for 1,600 metres and is the second toll-free tunnel in Hong Kong.
Two fully computerised jumbo machines were used during excavation, making a 5-metre excavation per blast possible with precision.
To enhance site safety, explosives were handled with extra care. Blast chemicals would only become active when mixed at the drill holes, thus eliminating the possible hazards of storing large amounts of explosives on site.
