A tunnel may only operate if it meets all relevant safety requirements and regulations. Getting the right systems in place, reviewing, adapting, and maintaining them to continually meet these legal conditions is at the heart of our tunnel design.
From emergency doors to escape tunnels, dynamic signage and radio communications, tunnel safety is a complex multi-faceted challenge. Working closely with our reliability, accessibility, maintenance and safety (RAMS) experts, our tunnel safety team designs and assesses components to deliver a safer tunnel environment.
Combining the quantitative data with behavioural models creates digital twins of tunnels that our team uses to run emergency scenarios and devise ways to manage tunnel evacuations and other procedures quickly and effectively.
