Tunnels

WSP has one of the longest standing and extensive tunneling practices globally. In both rock and soft ground, we build transportation, water, and utility tunnels, and underground spaces.

Man in a tunnel

Tunnel solutions are becoming more popular as built environments challenge us to find new solutions to maximise space and create community benefit  in our infrastructure.

 

WSP has one of the largest and longest-standing tunneling practices globally. Our expertise spans the entire project lifcycle from feasibility to design, construction management, testing and commissioning, and operation and maintenance.

 

We combine new technology with our years of experience to design transport tunnels and underground spaces in a variety of complex ground conditions including basalt, clay, sandstone and siltstone.

 

For more than a decade, we have had a significant  role in delivering city-shaping tunnel projects such as the Lane Cove Tunnel in Sydney, Airport Link in Brisbane, Waterview Connection in Auckland, Forrestfield-Airport Link,  and the new Melbourne Metro Tunnel and Sydney Metro.

Locally Dedicated with International Scale

Our global presence means you can draw on our experience across various ground conditions in big cities, seismic areas, mountains, and underwater.

 

Technology-driven

Our design teams work extensively with the latest technologies, including digital modeling of ground/structure interaction, BIM and VDC.

 

World-class Tunnel Solutions

We provide expertise across the entire project lifecycle, from feasibility to design, to construction management, to testing and commissioning.
