Mining Engineering, 2012, Vol. 64, No. 9, pp. 181-186
The theme of the 2012 North American Tunneling conference (NAT) was “Tunneling: Driving Value.” This theme best reflects where the tunneling and underground construction industry is today. Major advances that have been made in technologies have provided tremendous improvements in productivity, which, in turn, have allowed the industry to deliver more cost-effective and less disruptive solutions to the nation’s infrastructure needs.
