SURVEY WORK IN THE BUILDING OF THE STUTTGART S-BAHN REVERSING TUNNEL

VERMESSUNGSARBEITEN BEIM BAU DES WENDETUNNELS DER S-BAHN STUTTGART

The work of the survey engineer is of particular importance in tunnel construction, when high demands are placed on practical experience and expertise in overcoming problems and preventing errors. Modern surveying equipment, particularly the electronic distance meter and the tunnel laser apparatus for driving data, ease the work of the survey engineer, but the difficult working conditions (dust, noise, bad lighting) still place great demand on him. That such a satisfactory job, completed within the contract period, was made of the reversing tunnel for the Stuttgart S-Bahn can be attributed to the good co-operation with the contractor's survey staff and the other experts (geologists, construction engineers, etc.). The article describes the project, the geodetic conditions, the survey work for tunnel driving and the building of the tunnel shell, and the special survey work involved in the building of the tunnel.
