LARGE-SCALE FREEZING WORK FOR SUBWAY CONSTRUCTION IN JAPAN

Four parallel tunnels and two utility tunnels are being constructed simultaneously by the freezing method under a river in the central part of Tokyo. Over the proposed tunnels there exists an old concrete arch bridge across the river. In addition, in the river there are piers of an expressway viaduct close to the tunnels to be constructed. Under such conditions, this freezing work is being carried on with care, taking safety measures. The freezing work is described in detail, as are the safety measures.
