Qinwang Tunnel Successfully Drilled Through in East China

Qinwang Tunnel Breakthrough

On October 24, the “Fuchun” shield tunneling machine with a diameter of 15.76 meters reached the receiving well after seven months of tunneling in the Fuchun River Basin. Heretofore, the first river-crossing tunnel in Fuchun River Basin, the Qinwang tunnel, was successfully drilled through.

The tunnel project comprises two parts: the river crossing and the underground comprehensive, with a length of 3,066 meters in total, linking the north and south banks of the Fuchun River. For minimizing the impact on the surrounding environment, the tunnel crossed the Fuchun River in the form of a shield tunnel. The project team optimized the design of the “Fuchun” shield machine during the tunneling process, which ultimately secured the successful completion of the project.

The following pictures were taken on Oct. 24 and represents the shield tunneling machine “Fuchun” at the construction site of the Qinwang tunnel project in Fuyang District of Hangzhou, E China’s Zhejiang Province. Presently, it is the greatest shield tunnel in Zhejiang Province and the greatest road-rail joint construction tunnel in China.
