In order to promote the latest knowledge on current key issues and to facilitate technical discussions and debate amongst industry stakeholders, PIARC and its French National Committee are pleased to announce that they are organising their first "International Conference on Road Tunnel Operations and Safety".

This event is organised with the support of the European Commission, ITA COSUF, the French Centre for Tunnel Studies and the French-speaking Working Group of Road Tunnel Operators. It is aimed at tunnel owners, operators, rescue services, designers, tunnel safety officers, equipment suppliers and installers.

The Technical Committee D.5, Road Tunnel Operations, have a good reputation on delivery of relevant reports on sustainable road tunnel operations, and the committee contributes to develop an improved understanding of safety management in the light of accidents and fires, and expand study of underground road networks.

This first conference on road tunnel operations will focus on main issues regarding road tunnel operations and safety, safety management tools and systems, sustainable operations, safe operation of road tunnels and technical equipment - current practices and perspectives.

A very important event for all of us interested in high quality work and presentations on road tunnel operations and safety.

The conference will be held in France, at the Lyon Convention Centre, from 3rd to 5th October 2018. It will include two days of technical sessions and round table discussions, followed by a day of optional technical tours to tunnels in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. An exhibition will take place in parallel at the conference venue, enabling suppliers, equipment installers and engineering consultants to showcase their expertise.
