USE OF DEEP-FREEZING FOR TUNNEL CONSTRUCTION

ANWENDUNG DES GEFRIERVERFAHRENS BEIM BAHNTUNNELBAU

The Olten (Switzerland) railway junction modernisation program involved, among other things, the construction of a 810 m tunnel on a new line section 5,971 m long. The tunnel extremities are located in areas of loose rock, which meant complex problems for the builders to solve. To overcome the difficulties, use was made for the first time in Switzerland of the deep-freeze technique developed in West Germany.
