The Tel-Aviv –Jerusalem High-Speed Railway (A1) is composed of several segments. Segment C connecting between Sha'ar Hagai and Mevasseret Zion is particularly complex.
The road’s slopes, the concerns with regard to the environmental impact and the mountainous route in this area resulted in the decision that determined that this track segment will pass within a system of tunnels.
In order to maintain the tunnels’ quality, their usage safety and the integrity of the concrete and the electrical and control systems, a lining system that will prevent the penetration of groundwater into the tunnel is required.
