Tunnel Design & Construction Asia 2012
28-29 February 2012 | Hong Kong
“We are continuously strengthening the physical infrastructure in our country. This is an area which requires very large investments. In the 12th Plan, we will further accelerate investment in infrastructure. Connecting remote and rural areas by rail and road will get the top most priority.” - Dr. Manmohan Singh, Prime Minister, Govt. of India
Developing underground infrastructure for transportation, conveyance of water and wastewater, utility services and for commercial/mixed use purposes has become indispensable for Asia.
All urban centers of Asia have already installed extensive plans for underground infrastructure to cope with the shrinking and high value surface area.
But tunnelling is one of the most complex and risky engineering activity.
The 3rd annual Tunnel Design & Construction Asia is a platform for tunneling industry stakeholders to discuss and share best practices in constructing efficient and sustainable tunnel infrastructure.
To enhance the networking between the stakeholders of both the tunnel and bridge engineering industry groups, IQPC will be co-hosting our popular 3rd annual Tunnel Design & Construction Asia conference with Bridges Asia 2012 in Hong Kong.
While the conferences will be run concurrently, the networking, exhibition spaces and few panel discussions will be common for both the conferences.
