Wayss & Freytag Ingenieurbau – the German tunnelling specialist of Royal Bam Group - has won the contract for the main construction of the second main line of Munich’s S-Bahn.
The €676M (£619M) contract includes both the structural works of the western tunnel section from Donnersberger Bridge to Marienhof station and the new underground rapid transit station at Munich Central Station - the Nukleus.
In a joint venture with Max Bögl Stiftung, Ed. Züblin and Bauer Spezialtiefbau, Wayss and Freytag Ingenieurbau will construct the tunnel section from Donnersberg Bridge to Marienhof station and new underground rapid transit station Hauptbahnhof.
Overall project manager Markus Kretschmer said: ‘We are pleased to have allured competent partners with the joint venture for the challenging construction of the new underground rapid transit station Central Station and the western section of the tunnel. After almost two years of preparatory works at the central station, we can initiate the second phase there and start with the main construction works in the coming year.’
Currently there is another tendering procedure for the main construction works at Marienhof section. These construction works will be awarded in the coming weeks.
