TUNNELS FOR THE NEW HONG KONG METRO

Hong Kong will have its first underground railway system in operation by 1980. In the mid 1980's, five interconnected lines will serve 5.5 million people living or working within 30 square miles. By the end of the 1980's it promises to be the most heavily used system in the world. The article describes the background, design and construction of the tunnelling works. /TRRL/
