Metro station construction: What is at stake?

Underground metro stations are empty, safe boxes. The construction of these shafts are a core component of a tunnel project as metro stations must be finished prior to main tunnel passageway.

The most important challenge to build underground metro stations is the phasing of works, as these infrastructures come in contact with many external environments including underground networks and existing structures above and below the ground.

How VSL can help you
