Cheaper Tunnels

The tunneling community knows what tunnels cost. But, much more importantly, the tunneling community knows, or is in the best position to figure, what tunneling could cost if some of the constraints were changed. The question being raised is: how cheap could tunneling be if the tunnelers had more say?


  • High Speed Rail
  • Water Tunnels and Pipelines
  • Pumped Storage
  • Mining
  • Underground Roads
  • Roadless Communities
