Item description for The Westerschelde Tunnel: Approaching Limits by J. Heijboer...
The Westerschelde Tunnel - Approaching Limits presents a fascinating overview of the design and subsequent practical building of the tunnel. All people involved or interested in building of large infrastructure projects will be interested to read this book, which gives plenty of practical lessons. Lessons to be learned not only for building tunnels in all its facets, but in general when organizing and building such large constructions e.g. contracts, technical matters, design, quality and safety regulations. 'The Westerschelde Tunnel' highlights the technical challenges of building a 6.6 kilometers long tunnel under complex, sometimes extreme, geological circumstances. The Westerschelde Tunnel is a bored tunnel and in a European context a unique and innovative project. Whereas most of the tunnels in Europe are built in hard, rocky material, the Westerschelde Tunnel was bored through relatively soft ground, unique within the Netherlands and largely unknown properties, and with only limited experience and knowledge available from previous projects.
