The 1999 Mont Blanc road tunnel fire increased the emphasis on tunnel safety.  During this webinar we will hear about what has happened since this incident and how tunnel safety is now assessed and managed.  Dr Fathi Tarada has worked on numerous road and rail  tunnels and he will give an overview of what has changed over the last 20 years and examples  of current projects, as well as the evolution of standards from bodies such as the World Road Association (PIARC).

The webinar will be presented by Dr Fathi Tarada and James Catmur
