After three years, the International Conference of Tunnels and Underground Constructions 2018 took place in Slovakia yet again. This event of the Slovak Tunnelling Association was held from May 23 – 25, 2018 and was organized by GUARANT International at the Hotel Holiday Inn Žilina.

Traditionally, the main aim of the conference is to inform the wide professional public about the latest news in the field of planning, implementation, construction and operation of the underground construction projects. Therefore, the main topics covered were the overall development of the design and construction of underground structures, their reconstruction and remediation, monitoring, and lectures on electro-mechanical equipment, operational aspects of tunnels, contractual relations and risk management.

Furthermore, the third day of the conference was dedicated to the excursions connected with the currently running tunnel structures around the city of Žilina. Participants of the conference had an opportunity to attend four technical excursions. The first two of them included tunnels Višňová, Ovčiarsko and Žilina, situated at the D1 motorway. The third excursion focused on the tunnels Diel and Milochov and the last excursion took place at the Integrated Operator Workplace in SSÚD Považská Bystrica.

The conference was held under the auspices of Arpád Érsek, Minister of Transport and Construction of the Slovak Republic, and the chairman of the Žilina self-governing region.
