President of the Tunnelling Association of Nigeria, Mr. Abidemi Agwor made the disclosure on Monday.
The theme of this year’s conference is – Exploring the Socio-Economic Benefits of Developing Tunnelling and Underground Space Infrastructure in Nigeria.
ITACUS (Committee on Underground Space) examined the 'Use of the Underground', and in particular new ideas and uses for underground space. This went beyond simply utility tunnels and examined new commercial uses, underground concourses and how cities can utilise underground space for sustainable development. How can we as an industry influence the development of new undergound uses?
