Directional Boring Services
Along with our construction services, we provide directional boring, or horizontal directional drilling to install underground conduit, pipe, and cables. We are able to install pipe ranging from 1 inch to 24 inches under tracks, overpasses, cities, and more. The Gateway Signal teams are experts in directional boring and provide plowing and trenching services. Directional boring allows for a wide range of benefits as opposed to other methods of laying pipe, conduit, or cables such as excavations.
Advantages to Directional Boring:
Less impact on landscapes
Varying lengths of pipe can be installed
No need for deep excavations
Pipework can be installed in straight lines or curved
Causes less disruption by confining the working area to the points of entry and exit
Allows for minimal disruption to rail traffic
Lower overall costs due
Fewer workmen required
Reduced groundwater pollution and contamination
Directional boring is mostly utilized in heavily congested areas; this allows underground connections to be established. Boring allows installation of pipes, conduit, and cables without disrupting vehicle and pedestrian traffic or damaging the environment. Many times directional boring requires virtually no post-installation restoration.
