The history, development and potential of jacked underground structures

Based on his 2014 James Sutherland History Lecture, 'Not up, not down but sideways', James Thomson draws on more than 50 years of experience to provide a background to the process of jacking structures horizontally into the ground to form tunnels, and discusses the impact the technology has for the spatial planning of future projects.
