Road Tunnel – Interim Safe Operations

One of the worlds MEGA projects includes several road tunnels. The contracts are let to build them – in many discrete work packages.
No one will take responsibility for commissioning the the tunnel. All tunnel contractors have left the site. Millions of dollars can be saved if the tunnels can be opened to the satisfaction of the insurers and client.

Task: Professor Dix is asked to determine if the tunnels can be opened (and if so open them)

Method: Professor Dix conducts a full site and system audit. He then develops a means of manually configuring the installed systems to operate safely. He develops operational procedures to run the tunnel safely – trains the staff and opens the tunnel.

Outcome: Tunnel Open – No incidents. Professor Dix assumed responsibility for method and operation.
