Subterranean secrets

SECRETS BEHIND the successful development of the Madrid metro on time and to a tight budget will be revealed at next September's Underground Construction 2001 symposium.

Spanish public works minister Luis Eduardo Cortes Munez will deliver the Sir Julius Wernher memorial lecture to open the three day conference which will also see contributions on station design in Madrid and details of ongoing work on Line Nine.

The conference will hear about the Egnatia motorway project in northern Greece, the 9km long Kallidromo twin rail tunnel also in Greece, and the chambers and tunnels for fundamental particle research at the CERN physics facility in Geneva, Switzerland.

'But there are many more excellent papers, ' says David Hindle, chairing the symposium for the Institution of Mining & Metallurgy and the British Tunnelling Society.
