  • The first part of the presentation will describe the Earth Pressure Balance TBM used for excavating the Tsing Tsuen Tunnels. Initially I will give a brief introduction to the West Rail Project which will serve as an introduction for both parts of my presentation. I’m aware many of you will be very familiar with this project so I will try to keep this brief. Then I will focus on the Tsing Tsuen Tunnels and will describe the: Site conditions; TBM used; Segmental Linings Installed; TBM Performance; Tunnelling Challenges Tunnellling Success I will close this first presentation by drawing some conclusions.

  • NOTES: This slide illustrates the launching seal that pressures onto the shield skin, permitting early pressurising of the cutterhead with grout/backfill or other materials.
  • NOTES: This slide illustrates how the permanent, one-pass placement, segmental lining is placed within the protection of the tail-skin and continuous annulus grouting maintains bedding of the ring and limits ground movements.
  • NOTES: This slide illustrates the mechanism of the screw in applying face pressure and the importance of pore water pressure control.
  • NOTES: This slide illustrates steering mechanisms and survey control measures to limit risk of mis-alignment.
  • NOTES: This slide illustrates the importance of monitoring actual spoil quantity compared to assumed quantities to limit risk of over-excavation and subsequent settlement/subsidence risk.
