Population growth makes public transportation needs increase, one of the needs for the availability of population growth is the need for availability of railway. However, the available land for railway construction is very limited, therefore experts design the railway using a tunnel. Risk analysis in Railway projects with tunnel design is carried out to determine the most important type of risks. The results of this research show that the railway project with tunnel design has the same risks as railway projects with other designs, there are site risk and environmental risk. After finding the most important risk, use the Multiphase risk management method to manage this risk.
