Precision drilling and blasting for roadway and rail cuttings

EXEL Drilling offers specialist drilling and blasting services for road and rail cuttings, from civil road construction to preparing haul and access roads for mine and quarry sites.

We supply comprehensive drilling and blasting through any terrain or rock formation, providing everything from initial surveying and face profiling to drilling and shot firing. We conduct detailed assessments and volume surveys, and work with clients to ensure the desired results are achieved within time and budget.
