In the next 8 years (i.e. from 2014 to 2020) 9 new tunnels, with a total length of about 91 km (total length of tunnel tubes is 163 km) will be opened (see Figure 1).
According to the TSI international regulation (TSI-SRT 2008) all the operated tunnels should respect specific safety requirements. This paper will describe the process used for deciding about type of equipment and safety measures to be adopted according to the existing regulations in this field.
