This should take until mid-November, after which the tunnel will be inspected. The project has been held up since 9th June, 2000 when pressurized water and mud started to invade the tunnel while jet grouting was under way. Immediately, settlements affected the Praí§a do Comércio area and traffic was cut to heavy vehicles. Evacuation of the personnel was ordered. The 800 m tunnel was sealed between the Arsenal and Santa Apolí³nia shafts. As water ingress continued to flood the tunnel, it was decided to flood it completely to avoid soil liquefaction and further damage to surface buildings. Further studies were ordered and the project was altered. A team of Dutch specialists has been hired to help resume the project. Work completion has been set for end-2003. Metropaí§o, a consortium including Teixeira Duarte, Opca and Mota & Companhia, is responsible for construction. 37/02.The ACE JV formed by Somague, BPC, Engil, Spie and SBES will be using a refurbished Lovat EPB TBM to construct a 1.5 km Red Line extension, running east to west between Alameda and Sao Sebastiao.

The TBM, which previously excavated the Alameda-Oriente section on the Red Line and the Ameixoeira-Campo Grande section on the Yellow Line, commenced its job on 26th October, 2004 from a 35 m-long start box at Alameda station.

The tunnel between Oriente and Moscavide crosses Braí§o de Prata areoles, under the Cabo Ruivo areoles, intercepting also, already in the zone comprised between Moscavide and Encarnaí§í£o, Grilos sandstones, Xabregas clays and Marvila limestones. Between Encarnaí§í£o station and the airport terminal station, the alignment cuts through Grilos sandstones and Xabregas clays and emerges in formations composed of Qta da Conchas limestones and Vale de Chelas sands. As per design, the excavation method is NATM. Bidders can propose the TBM method. If NATM method, the support will be bolts, wire mesh, steel arches, shotcrete and final concrete formwork. The machinery to be used will be proposed by the bidders. The other underground structures within the project are Moscavide, Aeroporto and Encarnaí§í£o stations, designed for a 105 m platform.

Hotchief Solutions Middle East Qatar, Al Sraiya Strabag for Roads and Infrastructure and Petroserv Ltd signed the EUR256 million contract (QR1,065,765,88) for design and construction of the central section of the new sewerage network under the capital of Qatar. The client is the Public Works Authority (ASHGHAL).

The construction contract is part of an extensive refurbishment and expansion of the overloaded sewerage system in the historic south of Doha. The system, which serves an area of 680 sq km, is required as the result of rapid population growth. The overall project includes several smaller connections to the existing sewer system.
For constructing the 14.7 km-long tunnel, two TBMs will be used. After installation of the tunnel outer shell an inner lining will be added to protect the concrete from aggressive gases by means of an HDPE membrane, thus ensuring a project life of 100 years. The sewer tunnel will have an interior diameter of 4.5 m. In addition to the tunnel, shafts up to 45 m-deep will be built, some of which will serve as connectors to other IDRIS construction contracts. The joint venture is responsible for the execution planning for this demanding project which is scheduled to be completed by the beginning of 2019, a construction period of 45 months.
