The cut-and-cover part is finished. The contractor is CMB (Cooperativa Muratori e Braccianti di Carpi). Visit www.cmbcarpi.itFor tunnelling, two Hitachi ZAXIS 350 excavators are used. The face is supported with 60 18 m-long glass fibre bolts, injected at low pressure with expansive grout, and umbrella vaults formed by 41 FE510 steel pipes, 14 m long, installed around the crown. The contour is supported with 55 18 m-long glass fibre bolts, injected with low pressure expansive grout. The wall base is supported with 10 14 m-long glass fibre bolts, injected with low pressure expansive grout. Six forepoles are implemented at the face as excavation progresses (length of 30 m) with overlap of 10-20 m minimum. Steel arches (type 2IPN) are subsequently installed every metre, then wire mesh, steel fibre-reinforced shotcrete around the contour (thickness 25 cm) and at the face (thickness 10 cm). The minimum dosage is 30 kg/cu m. The suppliers are Ellas Geotecnica for the expansive grouts and glass fibre bolts at the face, Calcestruzzi (Italcementi Group) for the concrete and shotcrete, Metallegno for the steel arches, wire mesh and steel profiles in general and Maccaferri for the steel fibres to reinforce the shotcrete.
