Kota underpass project is challenging since the Traffic disturbance during construction is strictly prohibited. Besides, another challenge is soft clay with Nspt of 1 to 6 and 12 meters width. The most interesting activity is at the time to push the tunnel box undergorund by using hydraulic system or jacking method to vertically push the tunnel box into the ground on the right track.

The tunnel is like a tunnel box with transversal dimension of 10.10 x 4.95 m2, 8 meters length in each segment. The tunnel consist of 2 joints including 24 meters-east-joint linking Kota Station to Atrium terminal and 25-meter-west joint linking Atrium terminal to Bank Mandiri museum. Atrium terminal will be a project basis, as casting yard while tunnel box will be produced on the casting yard in three segments respectively at the north side.

This is the second project completed after Underpass project at Dukuh Atas, Central Jakarta in 1992 under the same completion system, however each of those projects has a different method suitable to on site condition and necessary.
