Doug Allenby


The BTS regrets to announce the death on Friday 15 December of Doug Allenby. Doug has not been well for some time.

As Bam Nuttall's Chief Tunnelling Engineer, Doug was well liked and respected in our industry. He was a recipient of the James Clarke Medal in 2015. There are not many Tunnel Engineers that can claim the breadth of experience of Doug's career, taking in such highlights as the second Mersey Tunnel, the 1970s Channel Tunnel, hydro rock tunnelling in Scotland, various overseas postings and the Dockland Light Railway Extension to Bank. Doug was never happier at work than when he had his overalls on problem solving with Miners.

A fuller obituary will follow.
