UNDERGROUND CONSTRUCTION OF THE REINE ASTRID STATION UNDER A SCREEN OF TUBES DRIVEN IN THE SOIL

LA CONSTRUCTION SOUTERRAINE DE LA GARE REINE ASTRID SOUS UNE GRILLE DE TUBES FONCES DANS LE SOL

The covering slab of the Koningin Astrid premetro station in Anvers consists of a series of parallel cylindrical beams practically adjoining each other. These beams are obtained by driving in the soil asbestos-cement tubes in which the reinforcement is introduced before they are filled with concrete. The driving is carried out according to the technique of horizontal drilling. A concrete joint built under the soil ensures the closing of the space between adjacent cylindrical beams. Compared to conventional construction methods, this technique has the advantage of allowing traffic and commercial activities to continue on the surface during the duration of the construction operations.
