Road tunnels safety

TIME : 2019-12-03 HITS : 113

In recent years, safety in road tunnels has become a major issue globally. More and more tunnels have been constructed to develop new road network through mountainous ranges or to avoid environmental problems in urban areas. 

Generally speaking, fewer accidents occur in tunnels than on open roads. However, if an accident occurs in a tunnel, the impact is often much greater th an on open roads. The consequences of a tunnel incident can be extremely destructive and dangerous, especially in the event of a fire, because the enclosed space hinders the dissipation of heat and smoke. In addition, access limitations for firefighting and rescue operation, difficulty in ensuring safe escape route of the tunnel users from an enclosed space increase the severity of the accident seriously.

 Fires in tunnels not only endanger the lives of tunnel users, they can also cause the damage to the tunnel structure with the very prejudicial consequences on the capital represented by the tunnel. In view of this, it is essential to prevent accidents in tunnels and provide adequate measures for tunnel users to communicate with emergency services to be rescued by fire brigade.

 Unfortunately, there is no such thing as absolute safety in road tunnels. Therefore, public road administrators must make every effort to reduce the risks to the greatest extent possible.
