Over-tunnel construction at Amsterdam station, London

Watch this event

The foundations of this quay wall intersect with the north-south metro-line tunnel over a length of 600 ft.

Rather than spanning the tunnel with heavy concrete slabs it "overhangs" the north-south subway line from two sides. Some piles pass at only 10 cm from the tunnel lining.

The technical challenges of design and installation at such close proximity to the tunnels will be discussed including the implications for taller structures.

Tea and biscuits will be available at 5:30pm

Advance booking not required
