Brief Description

Description :

This invention provides the process/method for facilitating the implementation of instant bearing capacity measures during the box jacking operation for construction of underpass below live rail/road traffic. This process will be fruitful where the implementation of ground improvement measure is very difficult due to site constraints from the ground surface.
