Tunnelling and Underground Construction Society (Singapore)

Underground Singapore is a Conference organised by the Tunnelling and Underground Construction Society (Singapore).  The purpose of the Conference is to provide a forum for the discussion of issues relevant to the design and construction of underground works in Singapore.  The aim is for contractors, engineers, owners and researchers to share and discuss their experience.


The afternoon session on the second day of the conference is allocated to the specific theme “Excavation management systems for bored tunnelling works”. This subject is of great importance and relevance to Singapore tunnelling industry as most of our tunnels are constructed under public roads in close proximity to buildings and utilities and therefore sinkholes/large settlements must be avoided.
