Tunnel construction through cities requires special skills

Underground railways are fast, environmentally friendly, efficient and an ideal solution for transporting passengers, particularly in densely populated areas. However, crossing under urban areas presents a particular challenge for tunnel construction.

Underground railways are complex facilities that must be built and operated without interfering with urban activity. In urban areas, it is especially important that the area crossed by tunnel construction does not display settlement, and that underground railway tunnels do not interfere with building foundations and are compatible with all underground pipelines.


Amberg Engineering Ltd. has many years of experience in all types of soft ground tunnel construction, both conventional and with tunnel boring machines. We have gathered our knowledge by building underground railways all around the world and deepened it by closely co-operating with research groups and the industry. This enables us to select the right technology for the particular local requirements.
