Project Surveying for the M5 (East) Tunnel Fitout

BHBB M5 East Joint Venture

Start: June 2000

Project Surveyors: Pier Tilocca (Bexley Rd), Bill McClatchie (Marsh St)

Supervising Surveyor: Ross Robinson

Ross Robinson Surveys was engaged as consultant surveyors for the M5 East tunnel fit-out works in June 2000. Since that time we have been supplying project support surveys for tunnel fit-out construction from both the Bexley Road & Marsh Street portals.

On the 30th April 2001 breakthrough occurred in the Westbound tunnel, followed by breakthrough in the Eastbound tunnel on 21st March 2001.

The surveyed misclose tolerances achieved at the breakthrough interface were in the order of 15mm in chainage, 20mm in offset & 10mm in height. The final survey adjustment of the total tunnel control (both eastbound & westbound) was made using least-squares techniques.

The project has since been completed, with the M5 East tunnel officially opened to the public on the 9th of December 2001.

We are currently in the process of finalizing our contract with BHBB M5 East JV by backing up construction data files, 'Works as Executed' documentation and transmittals, and volumetric analysis.
