The Future of Tunnelling seminar, hosted and supported by Melbourne Water, will be held on 14 April 2011 and will provide guests with an outlook on the future of tunnelling as well as networking drinks.
Representatives from the Northern Sewerage Project and the Melbourne Main Sewer Replacement project will be presenting on their respective projects, as well as speakers from John Holland (speaking on both projects), SKM, GHD and Aurecon.
The event costs $A66 for ASTT members and $A77 for non members.
Meanwhile, the $A650 million Northern Sewerage Project has celebrated a new milestone with the final section of pipeline now installed 64 m underground.
The Northern Sewerage Project, which is being jointly delivered by Melbourne Water and Yarra Valley Water, is located in and will service both the Merri and Moonee Ponds Creek sewerage catchment areas.
The site where the final pipe was installed is the meeting point of three intersecting tunnels that will form part of the new sewer, and is the largest and deepest shaft in the project.
