The article discusses a number of important points to consider before tunneling formwork is designed, including ground conditions, access, concreting limitations, availability of labour and local methods of construction. It advises that full trial assembly of the formwork must take place before equipment is delivered to site. This is not only for the manufacturers' purposes, but also for the contractors' inspection, as any changes or modifications required can be made more satisfactorily at this time rather than on site.
