Increasing Network Capacity and Functionality through Modern Tunneling Techniques: An inside look at the Metro Tunnel Project in Melbourne
In this case study, Nigel Holness, Director of Network Operations at London Underground (UK) explores the best strategies to maintain assets, tunnels and station infrastructure and steps that can be used to minimise disruption during metro rail construction and upgrades.
What steps can developers, operators and Government take to overcome these challenges and ensure metro rail projects are delivered on time, in budget? What’s more, what steps can be taken to ensure these new railways are designed to meet the needs of Australia’s growing population in the years to come?
To answer some of these questions, we have compiled a quick overview of 4 of the biggest metro rail developments happening right now across Australia. This article explores the innovative ways each of these projects is set to deliver complex underground rail construction to create transport hubs for the future.
