RESTORATION WORK IN AN ITALIAN HIGHWAY TUNNEL

The cracked and deformed linings of the Petraro Tunnels on the Messina-Palermo Highway in Sicily were repaired by means of epoxy resin injection and plastering. The stages of the repair technique are described and details are also given of the concrete tunnel structure, the materials employed and the relationship of the repair to other activities in the construction process. The work demonstrated the ability of epoxy resins to perform satisfactorily in conditions where there remains a degree of dampness and humidity. (TRRL)
