Legends of the Australian Tunnelling Society

Legends of the Australian Tunnelling Society

Bill Bamford participated in the Legends Panel Discussion last night as part of the ATS’ 50th Celebrations. It was appropriate that he was there as he was a key figure to the formation of the Society in 1972 and organised some of its major international achievements, including the 1983 ISRM Congress, the 1987 World Tunnel Congress and GeoEng 2000.

He answered questions about his role in setting up the Australian Tunnelling Society and what he thinks about preparation for young engineers to become involved in tunnelling. He shared the panel with Diane Mather and Arnold Dix, and they were asked questions by Rachael McCarrison.  The discussions were witnessed by a live audience in Melbourne, broadcast to Sydney and Brisbane audiences, as well as online.

The love for tunnelling was evident as was a recognition that continuing work for engineers was to involve themselves in making the case for intergenerational infrastructure and planning in a way that engineers are so good at – creatively and passionately.
