Ramboll director elected vice president for the world tunnel organisation

1 June 2016
Norwegian Ruth Gunlaug Haug, Division Director at Ramboll, has been elected vice president for the world’s largest tunnel organisation.

The International Tunneling and Underground Space Association (ITA) consists of 73 member nations. Its main objective is to share information and experiences with the technology and utilisation of underground space. With the increasing urbanisation and population density in big cities, this subject is becoming increasingly relevant when planning and developing cities.

Important tasks

Training, focus on safety and sustainable solutions are some of the keywords the organisation is working with. For example, ITA contributes to exchange of experience and training in developing countries.

”It is indeed very interesting to be a part of ITA’s further development. The ITA board consists of 12 technical experts with different experiences, cultures and perspectives. Tunnels are a very interesting subject, as they affect how we live our lives in the cities”, says Ruth Gunlaug Haug.

Ruth Gunlaug Haug is Division Director in Ramboll’s Road division in Norway. She has been a board member at ITA for three years and has among others implemented a program to recruit young engineers. She has previous experience from the Norwegian Public Roads Administration and Leonhard Nilsen & Sønner, LNS, in Norway.

World Tunnel Congress in Bergen

ITA holds the World Tunnel Congress every year, where thousands of participants gather from all around the world. Next year, the congress will be held in Bergen, Norway.
