Overview

As part of the Thames Tideway Tunnel scheme, the FLO team (Ferrovial-Laing O’Rourke JV) has completed a significant number of small-diameter connection tunnels and culverts excavated using SCL techniques.

The tunnels ranged from 3.1m to 5.8m in diameter and 12m to 250m in length. An in-situ concrete secondary lining was subsequently completed in the tunnels. The presentation will highlight the different equipment and methodologies employed for both operations as well as the synergies and efficiencies obtained across the different sites.

The speakers will also briefly present an example of a very interesting large diameter open face pipe jacking completed in a tidal environment at the Albert Embankment worksite..
