About this event

Singapore's 30km-long all-underground Thomson Line (TSL) involves the operation of approx. 30 TBMs to complete the twin running tunnels and the construction of 22 underground stations including 6 interchange stations. Needless to say this has involved a number of challenges for Tunnelling in complex urban areas and partly reclaimed land.

The presentation will concentrate on TSL-A and TSL-D with project features such as; varying geotechnical conditions, SFRC and RC Segment design, design of bored tunnels in consolidating marine clay, under and overcrossing of existing railway lines, tunnelling underneath operational stations, and Three-Way Interchange Stations.
