Neue Wege in den Sinai – finaler Durchbruch bei gigantischen Straßentunneln am Suez-Kanal

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.

New Routes to the Sinai – final Breakthrough in gigantic Road Tunnels at the Suez Canal

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.
