It has already become a tradition that the series of conferences of the Polish Road Congress begins each year with a Forum devoted to the construction and operation of tunnels. After two editions of the Polish Tunnel Forum, in 2021 the event has a new name – the 3rd International Tunneling Forum. This emphasizes its scope, presenting the experiences of different countries and the number of participants that is expanding every year. The growing position of the Tunneling Forum is confirmed with the endorsement by the International Tunnelling and Underground Space Association ITA-AITES. The honorary patronage was also taken by the General Director of National Roads and Motorways.
This time, due to the restrictions caused by the pandemic, instead of Wrocław, we kindly invite you to an on-line conference. During the conference, design, execution and hardware solutions in tunneling construction will be presented, based on examples of specific projects implemented in various countries and in Poland. It will be an overview of the different technologies used in tunnel construction, depending on the location and geological conditions. The second basic thematic block will be experiences from the functioning of the existing tunnels in terms of ensuring safety. They are mainly about fire safety and the related providing of proper ventilation.
