Call for Abstract

The Underground Singapore 2020 is the tenth in a series of successful conferences held since 2001. The purpose of the Conference is to provide a forum to share and discuss issues relevant to the planning, design and construction of underground projects in Singapore. The aim is for contractors, engineers, owners and researchers to come together and contribute their experiences. We especially encourage young engineers to submit technical papers on their projects, as part of their own professional development.


Papers on underground construction in Singapore are particularly encouraged, but papers on relevant work outside Singapore are also welcome. We are particularly interested in good case studies. Such case studies should include a summary of the subsurface conditions, details of the project, including construction methods and sequence, and monitoring results. Interesting observations and construction difficulties encountered can be included where appropriate. Back-analysis of the results, where carried out, is welcome, but is not mandatory.

Papers from the series form a valuable database on underground construction in Singapore, with papers relating to almost all of the major projects over the last 20 years.


The afternoon session on the second day of the conference is allocated to the specific theme “Lessons learnt from the tunnelling works in Thomson-East Coast Line project”. This subject is of great importance and relevance to Singapore tunnelling industry as most of our tunnels are constructed under public roads in close proximity to buildings and utilities as well as under residential buildings. Papers are invited on this subject to compare the effectiveness of various methods adopted to encourage a meaningful discussion on this topic.
