A brief description along with a number of case histories of each of the different types of ground treatment procedures used during the construction works associated with the extensions to the Madrid Metro over the last eight years are described in this paper. An account is given of how different adverse conditions and situations can be overcome by means of these grouting techniques, ensuring at all times the safety of the excavation process, be they using tunneling machines or when excavating by hand, be they under buildings, roadways or pipelines.
