The British Tunnelling Society

The British Tunnelling Society maintains a leading role in the development of the tunnelling industry to promote the safe, efficient, sustainable, and technically advanced design, construction and use of underground space.

The BTS calls on a long tradition of tunnelling in Britain to continue industry-wide development of this vital field of civil engineering. The society was a key player in the founding of the International Tunnelling Association (ITA) in 1974 and represents the UK on its General Assembly.
Individual and corporate members are working on underground projects of all types and purpose throughout the world.
The BTS supports a Young Members branch, who are active in schools and universities in promoting tunnelling as a career.
