The paper focuses on the underground structures and especially on the design and the special conditions of “Artemissio” (Left Branch), “Neochori”, “Sterna” and “Kalogeriko” tunnel. The geotechnical conditions where they are excavated, as well as the design approach of temporary support system and final lining are described, while a mention in special geotechnical and other issues for each tunnel and their management is included.
