LUL - G055
Civil Engineering - Deep Tube Tunnels and Shafts
|Publication Date:||1 April 2016|
The Scope of this Manual is to provide guidance on the application of the requirements for the life cycle of Deep Tube Tunnel assets owned by LU
The information contained in this Manual is derived mainly from historical information contained in existing LU documents and therefore does not necessarily reflect current good practice. Where possible, existing historical information has been supplemented by references to current good industry practice.
In lieu of the impending completion of Crossrail, four additional Crossrail documents have been added as guidance. These are: G2105 Construction Railway Operations, G2106 SCL Exclusion Zone Management, G2107 Pressure Systems and G2108 Occupational Exposure to Respirable Dust.
The purpose of this Manual of Good Practice is to support LU Standard S1055 (Civil Engineering - Deep Tube Tunnels and Shafts) and give guidance on established good practice solutions that meet the requirements of that standard.
