Maybe tunnel construction sounds like a boring topic to some, but if you dig deep, there are plenty of engineering challenges to overcome and exciting opportunities to discover.

Tunnels are an essential part of our modern transportation infrastructure. Whether a road needs to traverse a mountain range or burrow beneath an impossible-to-bridge water system, tunnels are the way to go.

What goes into building these tunnels? What safety procedures must construction teams operate within? What innovations have been developed to make these modern tunnels more reliable?
