The Academy of Tunneling - An Expert Program for Improving Future Tunnelling

As one of the major tunnelling countries in the world, the Norwegian tunnel community is continuously working to improve methods, management and hence the tunnel product itself. The Norwegian Public Roads Administration and the Norwegian Public Rail Administration as the main owners of infrastructure tunnels are responsible for approximately 1800 road and rail tunnels. Over the recent decades, these owners have experienced to a greater extent that long-term ownership implies a broad understanding of the tunnel structure in order to meet modern requirements for operation and maintenance. A growing concern with operation costs for modern tunnels, a better understanding of life cycle investments and technical challenges related to rock support and water and frost insulation have spurred several processes to improve methods, technical matters and management. One such tool, introduced by the Norwegian Road Administration and now offered on a regular basis in cooperation with the Norwegian Rail Administration, is a training programme called “The Academy of Tunnelling.”
