Take part in National Tunnelling Day

Thursday 7th December will be the third National Tunnelling Day. Its aim is to give the public a chance to see world class infrastructure projects currently being delivered  across the UK.

As part of the day a media campaign will run on Twitter under the hashtag #TunnelDayUK, sharing images, stories and news items.

This year the campaign aims to connect with a 1000 young people during the week leading up to National Tunnelling Day.

Member organisations of the British Tunnelling Society have been contacting local schools, colleges and universities so they can showcase the amazing tunnelling heritage the UK has and reveal the exciting projects that are being delivered across the country. Their efforts will be shared on Twitter using the hashtag #Target1000.

You can find out more on Facebook and Twitter.
