||This study has looked at the hazards that are associated with soft ground tunnelling in urban areas. It considered all the types of construction methods currently used. Data on tunnel incidents has been taken from the published literature as well as from data compiled by the authors. This has been used to understand and describe the range of possible primary and underlying causes of failures. Methodologies for the mitigation of risks are examined and recommendations are made for the effective management of future urban tunnelling projects.
