underground constructions Prague 2010
transport and city tunnels
14th to 16th June 2010
in the capital city of the Czech Republic, Prague. The Conference is co-organised by the Slovak ITA-AITES Tunnelling Association.
The preliminary programme includes two days of meetings in sections and a specialised exhibition and posters. A field trip to a tunnel construction site is planned for the morning of the third day.
We would like the conference to reflect the experience in the world and in Europe of preparing and implementing road, rail and city underground constructions, especially TBM tunnelling and long rail tunnel construction.
The conference programme will certainly reflect the increase in the number of tunnel construction in the Czech and Slovak Republics. There are several such projects either in preparation or under way in the Czech Republic, namely: a 24 km long rail tunnel linking Beroun with Prague, several new stages of the Prague Metro underground system and tunnel constructions that are a part of the Prague main road system. Tunnel builders in Slovakia face the challenge of building several long motorway tunnels.
We hope the conference programme will generate a lot of interesting content and provide new networking opportunities. We also believe that the Czech Republic and its capital Prague, the organiser of ITA-AITES WTC 2007, will once again charm participants of the Underground Constructions Prague 2010 Conference with its atmosphere and beauty.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Prague in June 2010.
