Techniques for roadway tunnelling
... of TECHNIQUES FOR ROADWAY TUNNELLING Griffith School of Engineering, Griffith Gold Coast, QLD4222, Australia Tunnels have become a very critical aspect of infrastructure development. Conventional tunneling, cut and cover, cover and cut are three commonly used roadway tunneling methods. This treatise explores the three approaches to tunneling to determine how effective they are in roadway tunneling. Despite the different principles behind each of the methods, they have allowed for the creation of roadways in area where environmental and geographical constraints had hindered infrastructural development.
