Before the invention of Tunnel Boring Machines (TBMs), drilling and blasting was the only cost-efficient way of creating long tunnels through harder rock types. Today it is often used in situations in which the use of TBMs wouldn’t make financial sense – as TBMs are often a costly technology – or in which they are unsuitable for ground conditions.
