The Underbore services in details

Under Road Thrust Boring

Thrust Boring is a very cost-effective way of drilling that is reliable and perfect in conditions where access isn’t easy and only a little space is available.

Thrust boring is relied on when only single duct installations need to be carried out. Thrust boring, is usually undertaken by inserting an auger that is outfitted with a cutting head within a 200mm to 1500mm diameter steel pipe.

And Underbore Pty Ltd is proficient and experienced in this type of drilling and excavations.

Horizontal Directional Drilling

HDD Drilling or Horizontal Directional Drilling is also referred to as Directional Boring or Directional Drilling. Horizontal Directional Drilling or Horizontal Bore Drilling is extremely precise, accurate and exact. This type of drilling be it, HDD or even Horizontal Bore Drilling has no adverse impact whatsoever to the immediate, surrounding areas, say in the Darwin roundabouts or any other suburb.

Drilling happens in a trenchless manner, by installing an underground conduit, pipe or even a cable that can be steered into a shallow arc and follows a set drilling or bore able pathThis is facilitated by a drilling rig, following a three-step process, which includes the Pilot Hole, Pre-Reaming and Pipe Pullback.

Rock breaking

Using a hydraulic driven Rock Breaker we are able to manipulate large rocks, including reducing large rocks into smaller rocks. This is ideal piece of equipment for the Northern Territory due to its high level of rock content, we utilise this method for digging swimming pools, excavating trenches, excavating entry and exit pits for drilling works.


Excavation is a way of clearing the space or creating space, whichever way you deem fit. If you need land clearing done or as part of a demolition or if the area is rocky and uneven, excavations may be needed to clear the place and remove any impediments or obstructions that are present there.

Underbore carries out excavation works for many clients’ based on their requirements. It could be to facilitate new construction, to erect a building, or a revamp or to lay pipes and cables.
