Underground construction is preferable due to lack of space availability on surface in urban areas, so the underground construction is increasing throughout the world for various reasons. Tunneling in urban area is a unique challenge, these challenge can be addressed with suitable tunnel design. New Austrian Tunneling Method (NATM) has become the method of choice for tunneling in urban areas to construct underground structure such as metro station, rail crossovers, multi-track metro lines. The
