High Speed Rail Link Nuremberg to Ingolstadt

16km of large diameter rail tunnel, as part of this High-Speed Rail Link, connecting the cities of Munich and Nuremberg.

Year: 1996

Country: Germany

Contract Value (US$): 600 Million

This project consists of 3 tunnels with a combined length of 16km, driven through a hilly terrain of soft and mixed geology in relatively shallow cover. The geological conditions were extremely challenging, requiring specialist methods such as horizonal jet grouting and various other soft ground tunnelling techniques.

Andreas Tauschinger was the Project Director for a period of 4 years during construction of this, the largest Tunnelling project in Germany at the time.
