ESTIMATING THE COST OF TUNNELLING IN ROCK

Assuming a tunnel length of 3050 m, horseshoe shape, watertight concrete lining, and groundwater elevation 15 m above the tunnel invert, the author developed cost curves for drilled-and-blasted tunnels and for machine tunneling. These curves can be adapted to tunnels with other parameters to estimate tunneling costs.
