The so-called lateral construction caterpillars lower the pipeline into the trench excavated for this purpose. For this purpose, each side tree bead holds a loop in which the pipe. After laying in the trench, the loops are removed again. Trenchless methods such as microtunneling or direct pipe are also used for undercrossings of roads or rivers. Natural gas pipelines are mainly laid underground so that nature can be almost completely restored after pipeline construction.
