- Design-and-build contract for approx. 13 km tunnel section with portal and ramp
- Part of underground transport system for Woodsmith Mine in North Yorkshire, England
- World’s largest deposit of polyhalite one step closer to mining
Whether it's a world record with the longest railway tunnel on earth at the Brenner or the epoch-making Gotthard project: the business of mechanized tunnel boring through hard rock is currently reaching new heights in Europe. Now Scandinavia is discovering the advantages of mechanized tunnelling. With the breakthrough at the Ulriken Tunnel, the first major tunnel project in Norway using a Herrenknecht Gripper TBM has been successfully completed.
Auftrag über 44 Millionen Euro an österreichische Unternehmen; Start Mitte November
After 21 months of tunneling through Norwegian rock, success was just 1.5 meters away, through a final rock face. On August 29, our Ulriken Tunnel team crossed that final distance and became stars, if just for a day. Join them as they complete this major effort to eliminate a bottleneck on a busy rail line to the country’s capital.
Skanska has, in a joint venture with Costain and Strabag, signed an early contractor involvement (ECI) contract with High Speed Two (HS2) Ltd. The total ECI contract is worth GBP 79M. Skanska will include its share of the contract worth GBP 27M, about SEK 300M, in the order bookings for Europe in the third quarter 2017.
Salini Impregilo and its joint-venture partner Strabag completed the final segment of a tunnel on the Tulfes-Pfons Lot of the Brenner Base Tunnel (BBT), which at 64 kilometres will be the longest underground railway in the world connecting Munich and Verona, improving the transport of goods in Europe.
Die Karlsruher Schieneninfrastruktur-Gesellschaft mbH (KASIG) setzt auf die Ingenieurbau-Kompetenz der Ed. Züblin AG: Als federführendes Unternehmen in Arbeitsgemeinschaft (Arge) mit der Schleith GmbH hat die Tochter des Strabag-Konzerns den Auftrag zum Bau des Autotunnels „Kriegsstraße“ in Karlsruhe erhalten.
Karlsruher Schieneninfrastruktur-Gesellschaft mbH (KASIG) is putting its trust in the civil engineering competence of Ed. Züblin AG. The Strabag Group subsidiary is leading a consortium with Schleith GmbH to build the Kriegsstraße car tunnel in Karlsruhe. The two-lane tunnel in Kriegsstraße is the second part of the Kombilösung public transport infrastructure project to build an efficiently functioning rail network for the local public transport and to reduce the volume of traffic in central Karlsruhe. The contract for the road tunnel has a value in the low triple-digit millions.
A construction consortium around Strabag (44 %) has been chosen to build a 5.6 km section of the D3 motorway in northern Slovakia. The € 239 million contract is being performed on behalf of the state motorway company NDS a.s. and is scheduled to be completed after 48 months of construction. The project comprises the construction of the roadway, 19 bridges, several retaining walls and more than 11 km of noise barriers. This section of motorway forms part of the Pan-European Transport Corridor and will improve the transport connection to the country’s northern neighbour of Poland.
“The challenges facing this project can be found in the geological conditions of the land. We are dealing with partly marshy terrain here, with the risk of landslides in many places,” explains Thomas Birtel, CEO of Strabag SE. For this reason, drainage measures are being taken and retaining walls erected ahead of construction. The section traverses several deep valleys, which will be connected by appropriate bridge structures. The geological conditions will require the carriageways in one area to be constructed at different elevations with a maximum horizontal separation of 4 m.
