A tunnel is an underground passageway, dug through the surrounding soil/earth/rock and enclosed except for entrance and exit, commonly at each end. A pipeline is not a tunnel, though some recent tunnels have used immersed tube construction techniques rather than traditional tunnel boring methods.
In 2017, the Foundation has delivered, started construction or is in the design stage of a total of 75 smart homes. We have committed to build a minimum of 200 smart homes for service members who sustained injuries in combat or training for deployment.
Thames Tideway Tunnel. We are helping to construct the west section of the Thames Tideway Tunnel – London's new 'super sewer'. Running underneath the River Thames, the new tunnel will ensure the capital's sewerage system is fit to support its projected population for at least the next 100 years.
Long term ground movements above a tunnel may continue to increase with time after tunnelling in clayey soils as the tunnelling-induced excess pore water pressures dissipate, whilst the changing earth pressure acting on the tunnel leads to further tunnel deformation during consolidation.
