Going Underground

Many people think about underground spaces only as carparks, subways and storage. But the increasing pressure of urbanisation and high above ground environmental costs are making many countries like France, Russia, Hong Kong and Singapore explore the opportunities presented in developing underground spaces.

A growing number of experts think we should be making better use of our underground ‘real estate’ as a way to ease some of our future urban pressures. Professor Harry Poulos, part of TWC’s Steering Committee, talked to ABC’s Radio National program Future Tense about underground spaces, mentioning The Warren Centre’s report “Underground Space” released in 1997.
