Programme Highlight

The main scope and challenge of the project is to construct the Eastern Tunnels and Western Tunnels by Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM), as both tunnels go through the city’s busiest districts. Meticulous project planning is essential in aiding the TBMs to navigate through a large volume of pile obstructions and utilities with zero interruption of services to citizens. To cope with the complex geological conditions, two different types of TBMs are being employed for excavation – a slurry TBM and an Earth Pressure Balanced (EPB) TBM.
