4TH Edition Of The ITA Tunnelling Awards The Winners 2018

Since 2015, the international competition "the ITA Tunnelling and Underground Space Awards" seeks and rewards the most ground-breaking innovation and outstanding projects in tunnelling and underground space utilization. This year the event took place in Nanjing, China. After editions in Hagerbach, Singapore, and Paris, France the fourth ITA Tunnelling Awards returned to Asia for the 2018 event. This location is meaningful as China has had to cope with increasing space-scarcity issues and while innovative projects are born to reshape cities of tomorrow, primary needs still concern major infrastructure with a strong focus on massive rail transportation projects and energy.

After two days of presentations, case studies and technical conferences, the Awards ceremony was a successful finale and offered the audience an immersion of ancient China. With more than 300 attendees for the 4th edition (day and ceremony), the ITA Tunnelling Awards confirms its position as a reference for recognizing major projects and innovations on-going in the world.
