    The Makers of Canada: George Brown

    George Brown (November 29, 1818 – March nine, 1880) was once a Scottish-born Canadian journalist, baby-kisser Fathers of Confederation. A famous Reform flesh presser, he was once additionally the founder and editor of the Toronto Globe, that is this day (having merged with different newspapers) referred to as the The Globe and Mail.

    Example text

    Waterproofing and cathodic protection of the tunnel structure were undertaken to meet the long-term serviceability and durability requirements. Screw piles were used under the approach ramps to resist buoyancy from the groundwater. Strict environmental management was employed to manage waste material and contaminants and maintain the ecological environment. Instrumentation and monitoring during tunnel construction had demonstrated satisfactory performance of the tunnel. ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT The Tugun Bypass was regulated by a number of complex Commonwealth, state and local government environmental laws.

    7 m or more were expected over a long period of time following construction. This magnitude of estimated settlement is consistent with the results of subsequent settlement monitoring. Old ground anchors More than 150 ground anchors were known to exist beneath William Street along the alignment of the proposed bored tunnels. The anchors were installed for temporary support of basement retaining walls for possibly six buildings. Anchors typically comprised twisted strands of high tensile steel wire grouted with cement (over fixed lengths of 6 to 10 m) within holes of about 80 mm diameter and with free lengths of about 8 to 10 m.

    An example of a section generated during construction is shown given in Figure 6. This section was from the tunnel boring machine (TBM) launch zone and initial (southern) section of the bored tunnel. These later interpretations were developed from bored tunnel spoil logs and observations made during excavation of the TBM launch box. The refined geological models were used for back analysis and predictive work. Refined geological models were not continuous across the project with separate models created for the Esplanade, bored tunnels, William Street Station and Perth Rail Yard.
