SYSTEMS ANALYSIS OF RAPID TRANSIT UNDERGROUND CONSTRUCTION. VOLUME I. SECTIONS 1-5
This study describes rapid transit system implementation, design, and construction procedures. The relationships and responsibilities of governmental, private, and public groups involved in planning and implementing an urban rapid transit system are discussed. In this report, techniques and processes of cut-and-cover and tunnel construction are discussed in detail. Environmental impacts of this construction as well as safety and insurance aspects are presented. Physical and institutional controls (sensitivities) on construction are identified. Physical controls include such factors as utility density, traffic conditions, maintaining existing structure integrity, ground conditions, and weather. Institutional controls include the project schedule, right-of-way acquisition, material and equipment supply, and labor agreement and productivity.
