 Road tunnels and technology in an operational perspective
Arild Petter Sovik, Tunntech Global News

Thousands of the world’s foremost experts in road infrastructure, transport and technology met in Abu Dhabi this October for the first ever World Road Congress to be held in the Middle East. Organized by the World Road Association (PIARC) and the Abu Dhabi Department of Transport (DoT), the major event attract more than 5,000 delegates from 120 countries and with at least 40 government ministers.

The overall theme of The ITA-COSUF Workshop 14th – 15th November 2019 are safety concepts, technical installations and improvements in tunnel safety in Austria. ITA COSUF is also inviting to a technical visit in the Arlberg tunnel and a closer look to safety concept and technology in this complex road and rail tunnel. 

06 - 10 October 2019, Abu Dhabi, UAE                         

The aim of the Congress is to facilitate exchanges between experts and decision makers from around the world, to discuss the main issues and challenges which are facing the road transport world and to present the results of the work of PIARC over the four preceding years.

The World Tunneling Congress 2019 opened officially on Monday May 6th, with the Opening Ceremony, but thematic courses and international teams started to work May 3rd.

The official program is distinctive in the way it highlights the many connections between the world of tunnelling and the disciplines that until now have been considered unrelated to the field. A special Triple-A sessions - Archaeology, Architecture and Art are examples of such topic, and is followed up with a special visit to see the Tunnel Borbonico, the ancient underground tunnel commissioned in 1853 and just recently restored.

The world is facing a huge energy challenge. Fossil fuels are 'out-dated‘ and sustainable alternatives are the unquestionable future. This will be the topic of the ITA-COSUF workshop on New Energy Carrier Vehicles in underground transportation facilities on the 21st of February 2019.

20 - 21 February 2019, Sydney, Australia                         

More tunnels are being planned and constructed in Australia now than ever before to overcome increasing urban congestion. Tunnels are complicated to operate and maintain because they require precise plans and procedures to reduce the interruption of traffic flow.

Over 300 representatives of the European infrastructure community will debate, during this one-day conference, on how to define and implement a groundbreaking approach for the management and renovation of underground infrastructure.
