Cutting Edge 2021 took place at the end of last month in Dallas, Texas with a theme of 'Advances in Tunnelling Technology'

In the 10th edition of the conference, speakers, exhibitors, sponsors and visitors met to discuss the latest advances in tunnelling technology and methodology, with a focus on how these can be harnessed to assist the industry’s major upcoming underground projects.
