International Tunnelling Association (ITA)
The BTS played a major part in founding the ITA and continues to be active in its activities.
Our national representatives attend the annual ITA General Assembly and World Tunnel Congress. Donald Lamont is the current UK Member Nation representative to the ITA General Assembly.
The ITA has a number of Working Groups, which meet annually and prepare reports and guidance on a range of tunnelling topics from Underground Works through to Shotcreting and Mechanised Tunnelling. Information on publications can be accessed via the ITA Website.
Much of the ITA activity is done through its working groups and the UK is represented on many.
BTS members normally contribute a number of papers at each World Tunnel Congress.
The BTS has its own page on the ITA Website.
