BAM achieves final breakthrough for Cannstatt Tunnel

26 Oct The final breakthrough has taken place in the construction of the Cannstatt Tunnel, which forms part of the Stuttgart-Ulm rail project in Germany.

BAM subsidiary Wayss & Freytag Ingenieurbau has been carrying out the tunnelling as part of a joint venture working for client DBPSU.

The small group of people invited to witness the breakthrough included Baden-Württemberg's transport minister Winfried Hermann, DB infrastructure director Ronald Pofalla and tunnel sponsor Andrea Klöber.

The breakthrough, which took place at a depth of about 13m, completes the drive for the 3.5km-long tunnel. Some further work continue until about mid-December.

The new tunnel will connect the Mittnachtstraße S-Bahn station via the new Neckar Bridge with the existing route from Stuttgart Central Station in the direction of Cannstatt from 2025.
