With the theme “Innovation and Sustainable Underground Serving Global Connectivity”, WTC 2020 will indeed be the world’s leading tunnelling event that will explore the latest innovations, trends and advances in all areas of tunnelling, i.e. from tunnel project development to both design and construction, as well as to tunnel service life cycle strategies, in a sustainable manner.

About the Theme of the WTC2020 Kuala Lumpur

The theme of the World Tunnel Congress 2020 has conscientiously been chosen to timely reflect the innovation achievements in the efforts of ITA-AITES in promoting the use of tunnels and underground space for the benefits of public, environment and sustainable development for the past almost half century since its establishment in 1974.

Growing numbers of underground innovations claim to hold the key to unlock the door to a ‘smarter urban connectivity’. More often than not, these innovations are being embedded into highly complex underground projects that aim to minimise environmental hazards, to save energy, to increase the functional diversity of the urban structure, to reduce the need of local transporation, to make services more easily accessible to residents, and to protect the urban landscape and culture for sustainable urban development. Malaysia’s advantage in gaining a significant share of this engineering feat lies in its existing strengths in underground infrastructure, innovative environment and strong history and political will to tackle sustainability challenges. The innovative and unique SMART tunnel, the first of its kind dual-purpose tunnel in the world is the best example of Malaysian own development. This example became known worldwide as an effective solution to optimise expenditures to solve multiple problems. The tunnel is expected to prevent billions of dollars of possible flood damage and costs from traffic congestion in Kuala Lumpur’s city centre. It is listed as one of the top 10 world’s greatest tunnels by CNN. SMART project won the Bristish Construction Industry International Award in 2008 and received the UN Habitat Scroll of Honour Award in 2011 for its innovative and unique management of storm water and peak hour traffic.

“When we judge by the progress in the use of underground space in Malaysia the progress has been remarkable. This is an indication of the fact that Malaysian professionals have not only learned from the training, but most important, have developed their own expertise to come up with ingenious underground solutions to their problems.” cited by Prof. Tarcisio B. Celestino, the Immediate Past President of ITA.

INNOVATION AND SUSTAINABLE UNDERGROUND SERVING GLOBAL CONNECTIVITY” is more than a slogan for ITA-AITES and its members, it is a challenge and commitment to contribute to sustainable development. It is our great honoured to share with the global tunnelling fraternity the Malaysian’s little success story in innovative tunnelling and underground solutions. The encouragement of the innovation and sustainable development in the organisation of WTC, and the technical presentations, is a key theme. We would be delighted if we inspire a whole new generation’s interest in the work and achievements of ITA-AITES.
