What lies beneath? A decade of underground construction in Hong Kong
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article › peer-review
This paper presents a photographic record of some of the major underground projects constructed between 2006 and 2016. This record has been collected during student field study tours run by the University of Portsmouth for both undergraduate and post graduate students of Engineering Geology and Geotechnics and Engineering Geology degrees respectively. A brief overview of the relevant facts regarding Hong Kong climate, topography and geology are presented. This is followed by a review of typical construction methods used to create underground space in Hong Kong. Pertinent geological context is given in the text or as supplementary data to the photographs presented.
