Transport infrastructure is widely believed to have developed in London because of the suitability of the London Clay as a tunnelling medium. The extensions to the original deep tube have necessitated tunnelling into the Lambeth Group soils. This presented challenges during construction and subsequently during operations different geology driven concerns have developed. This presentation will highlight the investigation, design and construction of the solutions.
