The deformation characteristics of the rock mass in the intersection between the Muzhailing highway tunnel and the inclined shaft is a complicated three-dimensional problem. Under the influence of high geostress, large deformation hazards may occur in the surrounding rock. Taking this as the research background, this paper analyzes the deformation mechanism of surrounding rock before and after prestressed anchor cable support through numerical simulation. Then, through theoretical analysis, a new tunnel support method using high prestressed constant resistance and large deformation anchor cable was proposed. The field monitoring results show that the constant resistance and large deformation anchor cable support can well control the deformation of surrounding rock, and the maximum deformation is within 300 mm. At the same time, the constant resistance anchor cable can always maintain a high prestress, which makes the stress of the surrounding rock uniform, and reduces the risk of damage to the steel arch due to local pressure. Moreover, the support method limits the expansion of the plastic zone and improves the overall stability of the surrounding rock.
