Traditionally, the underground construction industry in Singapore has been more concerned with the successful delivery of infrastructure projects than blowing its own trumpet. However, with the volume of investment now under way in this small island state and a rolling programme of schemes earmarked for the next three decades, there is huge interest in the tunnelling market here. Editor Steve McCormack was invited by the Land Transport Authority to visit key contracts in progress.

North-south in Berlin
25 January, 2000
Changes to design and the near catastrophic flooding of a main tunnel caisson have resulted in the construction of central Berlin's missing transport route - the north-south rail link - slip from its original planned completion of 2002 to latest estimates of 2005. However, with the start of the final set of TBM tunnel drives, Lot 3 construction supervisor Lahmeyer International believes the project is now on the home stretch.
