The lecture will present examples of recent advances in construction of large tunnels and deep excavations for transport infrastructure, drawing on case histories from around the world in a wide variety of ground conditions. In most cases these are in the urban environment and ground movement prediction and control are therefore particularly important. Case histories will be presented to illustrate advances in ground movement control for earth pressure balance tunnelling machines and for deep excavations.

Ground movements caused by tunnels and deep excavations are potentially damaging to buildings. Recent research linking field measurements, centrifuge modelling and numerical analysis will be presented to show how different types of building foundations respond to ground movements associated with construction of tunnels and deep excavations.
