Bucharest Subway Tunnels

Bucharest, Romania

Category: Transport


The Bucharest Metro is a rapid transit system network with 51 stations and 70 km (44 miles) of track. First opened in 1979 and now serving over 500,000 passengers daily, numerous tunnels of the network recently needed to be renovated to stop water leakage.

Products Used:

A complete program of PENETRON technology was applied to seal the tunnels from further water ingress: PENEPLUG rapid-setting compound was used first to stop all active leaks, PENETRON INJECT grout helped to fill and seal deeply embedded voids, cracks and fissures, and PENEBAR SW-45 waterstop was used for all compromised construction joint in the concrete structures.
