      An immersed tunnel method was applied for the construction of the tunnel, called Bosphorus Crossing Immersed Tunnel, and it is at the present time the world’s deepest immersed tube tunnel. The tunnel elements were prefabricated off-site and towed by ship to the work-site for installation and connection to the previously installed underwater Author: Yukinobu Oda, Kazunori Ito, Takahide Honda, Solomon Yim. Immersed tunnels have been around for more than a century but remain a relatively unknown form of tunnel construction. For waterway crossings they are an effective alternative to bored tunnels and bridges, particularly in shallower waters, soft alluvial soils, and earthquake-prone areas. Successful implementation requires a thorough understanding of a wide variety of civil engineering.

      The Drogden Tunnel consists of a km-long immersed-tube tunnel and two m-long approach tunnels, running from the artificial island of Peberholm to Kastrup on Amager Island. Danish engineers are poised to begin construction of the world’s longest immersed tunnel. Denmark is no stranger to challenging infrastructure projects. Over the years – primarily in an effort to improve the transport links between the country’s mainland and its largest islands – it has built a host of record-breaking bridges and tunnels that have [ ].

    The HZM immersed tunnel, a key part of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB) that crosses the Pearl River Estuary and links Hong Kong to the east, and Zhuhai and Macao to the west, is km.

The tunnel parts under the North Sea Canal consist of six tunnel elements, each approximately m long, thirty-two metres wide and a height of around eight metres. In May, June and July these elements were transported to Velsen and immersed into a ten metre deep and forty metre wide trench.

An immersed tube is a kind of undersea tunnel composed of segments, constructed elsewhere and floated to the tunnel site to be sunk into place and then linked together. They are commonly used for road and rail crossings of rivers, estuaries and sea channels/harbours.

Immersed tubes are often used in conjunction with other forms of tunnel at their end, such as a cut and cover or bored tunnel.

A tunnel is an underground passageway, dug through the surrounding soil/earth/rock and enclosed except for entrance and exit, commonly at each end. A pipeline is not a tunnel, though some recent tunnels have used immersed tube construction techniques rather than traditional tunnel boring methods.

A tunnel may be for foot or vehicular road traffic, for rail traffic, or for a canal. Tunnels and underground excavations, horizontal underground passageway produced by excavation or occasionally by nature’s action in dissolving a soluble rock, such as limestone.A vertical opening is usually called a s have many uses: for mining ores, for transportation—including road vehicles, trains, subways, and canals—and for conducting water and sewage.

Different methods of tunnel construction and their details are discussed. In most of the cases tunnel construction is expensive but it saves time and provides comfort.
