A TALE OF THREE TUNNELS

This article describes "available techniques" adapted to resolving the unique problems associated with construction of three submerged under-water tunnels, each of which was confronted with a different problem. The projects are the steel-shell tube of the Hong Kong vehicular tunnel, the trench method used for the four-track tunnel of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority under the East River in New York City, and the second Hampton Roads Tunnel in Virginia which required a system of surcharged sand drains.
