This talk will discuss the engineering challenges, risk management and innovative solutions for large scale sub-sea tunnel construction, taking the immersed tube tunnel of Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge as an example.
Subsea tunnel projects are generally of high risk because of hostile underwater environments and uncertain ground conditions. Furthermore, risks keep evolving and accumulating as the projects progress. For a subsea tunnel project, risk management should be viewed as a dynamic process implemented from the beginning to the end and embrace all perspectives and all parties involved. By using a whole-process risk-management system and utilizing risk-management tools throughout a project, potential risks can be
clearly identified at the earliest stage such that appropriate risk mitigation measures can be implemented in a timely manner.
The whole-process risk-management was successfully adopted for the 6.7 km immersed tunnel section of the recently opened Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge project in China.
