Title Advantages of techniques not requiring trenching
Original title Les avantages des techniques sans tranchée [in French]
Bibliographic information May 2007, No.96, p.36-47. Illus.
Abstract This article describes the various techniques of underground work that do not require trench work. They mainly involve the laying or repairing of pipes. By avoiding having to dig up roads, they allow important savings and minimize obstructions to traffic. They are less hazardous than traditional methods, but nonetheless require certain precautions, particularly during work near roads which are kept open to traffic.
