Structural elements

In addition to the main tunnel and depending on utilisation (road, rail, water), the stringent requirements for a tunnel project demand various safety, pedestrian and vehicular access structures.

Geometry of structure

Every Tunnel construction has its own uniqueness and complexity. We will provide the best solutions for any kind of challenges e.g. transverse section, emergency shafts / galleries & lay-bys, entrances and exits, portals.
