Abstract:

Over the last ten years, a significant number of new underground metro infrastructures projects have been initiated worldwide. Most of these huge, strategic and costly projects are located into fast developing or dense urban areas, facing thus important challenges: interactions with existing buildings, safety risks for the population, validation of innovative construction processes, environmental issues and long-term serviceability. This paper aims to illustrate some of innovative concepts, methods and assessment devices benefit recent projects in addressing some of these important issues.
