Am Weihnachtswochenende läutete der ägyptische Präsident S.E. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi eine neue Epoche für die Sinai-Halbinsel ein: Der dritte von vier Herrenknecht-Mixschilden S-960 (Ø 13.020 mm) beendete am Samstag, dem 23. Dezember 2017 die Vortriebsarbeiten für den ersten von zwei neuen, doppelröhrigen Straßentunneln unter dem Suez-Kanal. Die Tunnelbauwerke bei Port Said und Ismailia sollen die Sinai-Halbinsel künftig stärker an das ägyptische Kernland anbinden und eröffnen neue wirtschaftliche Chancen. Anstatt bis zu 5 Tage vor der Fähre in langen Auto-Schlangen zu verbringen, wird die Passage des Suez-Kanals über die leistungsfähigen Tunnel künftig lediglich 10 Minuten dauern.
On the Christmas weekend, Egyptian President H.E. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi rang in a new era for the Sinai Peninsula: on Saturday, December 23, 2017, S-960 (Ø 13,020 mm), the third of four Herrenknecht Mixshields, completed tunnelling for the first of two new twin-tube road tunnels under the Suez Canal at Ismailia. The tunnels at Port Said and Ismailia, designed to link the Sinai Peninsula more closely to the Egyptian heartland in future, will open up new economic opportunities. Instead of spending up to 5 days in long car queues for the ferry, crossing the Suez Canal via the efficient tunnels will only take 10 minutes in future.
