The paper presents the results of the chemical grouting utilized to stabilize the soil prior to excavation of the Haret Hreik-Sands tunnel beneath the Cocadi-Cola Highway and Airport Boulevard, in Beirut, Lebanon. The tunnel face/crown was successfully injected with a silicate base grout by means of inside tunnel micropiling. A discussion of the injection methods used as well as technical evaluation and pertinent field observations are provided.
