BENGALURU: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said on Thursday he hoped more organizations would come forward to work with the government on the development of underground infrastructure and technology. Speaking at the inauguration of the two-day Nirmaana 2022 conference, organized by the Institute for Research Development and Training in Construction Trades and Management (INSTRUCT), he said the technology Tunneling has progressed to adapt to various challenges, therefore, organizations have to strive for more demanding tasks. The conference which focuses on tunnels and underground construction will last until Friday.

“Building a tunnel in a city for a metro is a big challenge, but we did it. However, there is a great need for utility engineering, which is vital for this,” he said. Furthermore, he stressed the need for tunnel construction companies to prioritize ground workers involved in the construction of underground infrastructure.

“The time has come for organizations like INSTRUCT to actively participate with government agencies in terms of technology, management and timely construction. I welcome INSTRUCT for participating, both in letter and in spirit, on the ground, so that we can all work together,” he said. INSTRUCT acts as a training center for engineers, especially those involved in construction as well as event organizers. He also said that although there is a lot of global technology in Karnataka, there is a need to develop indigenous technology which will be important for the country.
