New Tunnel Management System

(Open for selected users)

Tunnel Management System

Administering the regulations and strategies for 1100 - 1200 tunnels requires a good overview/system. The application handles excisting tunnels, but also tunnels that are currently being planned or under construction. There is often a need for further overviews, surveys and analyzes. This tool is a response to such needs. The tool is database-based and can connect to any similar databases. The system can be used by others to similar needs.
