Tunnelling in South East Asia Region
Tunnel Leader Singapore - Arup
4.25pm – 4.45pm: Andreas Raedle, Arup: Tunnelling in South East Asia Region
The presentation will give an insight of design and construction aspects of several on-going challenging major underground infrastructure projects in Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. Furthermore in the future, planning and design for more challenging projects in the South East Asia Region will require innovative technologies. Lessons learned from tunnel projects that have employed technical innovations such as large diameter tunnel segment design, accessible cutterhead, high density slurry face support, cutter instrumentation and geophysical exploration technology will be shared and their applicability to upcoming South East Asia tunnel projects will be discussed in detail.
