In this work, research was carried out based on the shield tunnel of metro line 1 in Hangzhou. The construction of this tunnel beneath the sewage pipelines, which have large diameter with water pressure. The project studied in this treatise is relatively rare in China in terms of sewer pipes, the number of sewers, spacing between shield and sewers and the crossing times. A numerical model was established to analyze the construction of metro across the sewage pipelines with water pressure, taking the interactions between tunnel, pipelines and soil into account. The stress of pipelines, settlement of pipelines and ground during the crossing process were calculated. The finite element results were compared with measured results to verify the reliability of numerical results. Some meaningful results were achieved.
