ABOUT ASTT

Who we are

The Australasian Society for Trenchless Technology (ASTT) is the peak body for trenchless technology in Australasia, providing advocacy, leadership, support and educational opportunities for organisations and individuals involved in trenchless technology.

Established in 1991 following a seminar by a technical sub-committee of the Water Resources Council, the Society was established as a stand-alone, independent body, affiliated with the International Society for Trenchless Technology (ISTT).

 

The objectives of ASTT are to:

•  Advance the science and practice of trenchless technology for the public benefit
•  Provide a forum in Australia and New Zealand for interchange of multi disciplinary knowledge and skills in the field of trenchless technology
•  Arrange or sponsor meetings, conferences and symposia on subjects consistent with the objectives of the Society
•  Encourage the interchange of specialists in trenchless technology within Australia and New Zealand
•  Liaise and establish affiliations with related organisations, both within Australia, New Zealand and overseas
•  Inform and advise the public and Government on matters concerned with trenchless technology
•  Encourage education, training and research
