Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb. 14
German Herrenknecht company’s tunnel-boring machine has been used to carry out construction work in the Tashkent Metro, Trend reports with reference to Uzbekistan Railways.
This machine not only performs tunneling, but at the same time strengthens the underground passage. The finished concrete tunnel consists of tubings, which are separate segments of a tunnel ring. These prefabricated fasteners are now made by the Uzbek specialists.
