With almost two decades of constant activity, the Iranian Tunneling Association (IRTA) has taken many steps to increase public awareness, and to coordinate and direct research by activating working groups, publishing specialized magazines, journals and books on tunneling, and developing the Iranian Tunneling Database.
IRTA has also successfully held 11 national and 2 international conferences and exhibitions in the past to boost cooperation between professional bodies and universities, and to promote latest tunneling developments and advancements.
Today we are honored to hold the 12th Iranian & 3rd Regional Tunneling Conference entitled "Tunnelling and Climate Change" with the participation of hundreds of students, researchers, and national and international tunneling experts and specialists.
In order to introduce the capabilities of Iranian tunneling engineers, IRTA approved Tehran`s metro line 6 project to be introduced for taking part in ITA Award 2017 competition.
We are proud to announce that Tehran`s metro line 6 project was nominated as one of 4 finalists in the "Major Project of the Year" category.
All nations must be proud of their achievements, as they provide their nations with the hope and strength needed to move toward future goals.
It is hoped to continue such passion and activities in future that enables us to achieve higher goals.
