With more than a bar of pressure difference across the vertical height of the 17.5m diameter cutterhead, the high groundwater table, in combination with loose soils of the area close to the sea front and still beneath a shallow cover of just one TBM diameter, has prevented safe man intervention under pressures that would have been needed without lowering the ground water table.

One of the emerging trends in the tunneling industry has been the use of design-build and other forms of non-traditional contracting methods.
PREEDY: We used a lump sum design-build procurement for our SR 99 bored tunnel project under downtown Seattle with a couple of important modifications.
PREEDY: Several years ago we were not able to use design-build at WSDOT until a legislative change allowed it.
PREEDY: On the SR 99 tunnel, we decided to construct the main tunnel using design-build, but the portals on both ends are going to be separate contracts using design-bid-build.
PREEDY: You really want to try to establish a pattern too.
PREEDY: That was a very big concern for us when we first started doing design-build.
PREEDY: WSDOT had done other design-build projects before the SR 99 tunnel, but the rest of them were heavy civil works above ground that were focused on achieving basically a lump sum contract up front.
PREEDY: There is one basic takeaway, and that is there is no such thing as a free lunch.
PREEDY: And because design-build is a best-value procurement, it is conceivable that the entity that wins the procurement is not the low bidder.

Matt Preedy, deputy administrator of the Alaskan Way Viaduct Replacement Program at the Washington State Department of Transportation, said that included segments that will eventually be placed within the length of the tunnel yet to be drilled.
"Until the machine is underway and tested, the schedule should be expected to be dynamic, and since that repair work could take less time, it could take more time, we're not in a position where we can say with any certainty how long that would take," Preedy said.
