Milestone for hard Rock Tunnelling: Final double Breakthrough Follo Line in Norway


The construction of Norway's longest railway tunnel marked a breakthrough for the use of tunnel boring machines in hard rock tunnelling. In Scandinavia long rail tunnels have hitherto been drilled and blasted rather than bored. In the Follo Line Project, the tunnel boring machines made a convincing case for themselves all the way through the extremely hard Norwegian rock. Four tunnel boring machines (TBMs) by Herrenknecht worked simultaneously to excavate the main part of two 20-kilometer railway tunnels between Oslo and Ski. On February 26, 2019, the final double breakthrough of the Double Shield TBMs "Anna" and "Magda" successfully completed the challenging mission and drew a spectacular close.


Rail Museum turns Spotlight on Role of Fugro’s geotechnical Expertise in HS2

Soil samples in the laboratory may seem a world apart from the gleaming high tech of the high speed train. Yet both share the spotlight in a current exhibition at the National Railway Museum in York giving a rare insight into the role of testing and prototyping in pushing the boundaries of rail engineering.
