The ITA COSUF Webinar on Tunnel Safety (29 April 2021) organised by Activity Group 4 (Tunnels Safety Officers) in collaboration with the Dutch Knowledge Centre for Underground Construction and Inderground Space (COB) was visited by over 200 attendees from all over the world. After a special word of introduction by ITA COSUF Chairman Max Wietek the main programme started by a visionary talk of TSO Andre Stein on tunnels in the 21th century with all future changes in mobility. Andre expressed his view on the self-rescue concept of future road tunnels in an age of disruption. Then the new Köhlbrand crossing in Hamburg was covered in a presentation by Olaf Thiemann (Hamburg Port Authority) and Frank Embert Kreiser with a bicycle tunnel as a special topic. And last but not least the COB paper on cyber security was presented by Jasper Kimstra and Johannes Braams of COB. They went into the details when the paper will be useful during the lifecycle of a tunnel. After the webinar the 22nd meeting of the ITA-COSUF Activity Group 4 was held.
