GI works for German-Czech rail link awarded

Správa Železniční Dopravní Cesty has appointed a joint venture of Mott MacDonald and Sudop Praha to undertake geotechnical studies for a new railway link between Germany and the Czech Republic.

The JV will carry out geotechnical investigations and perform environmental impact assessments for the route selection options for the link between Dresden in Germany and Ústí nad Labem and Litoměřice in the Czech Republic.

Mott MacDonald has said that the new railway will be a part of the Trans European Transport Network’s Orient/East Med core corridor and the first section of the Czech Republic’s future high speed rail network. According to a statement from the consultant the electrically powered rail line will pass through the Ore mountains enabling it to avoid existing railway congestion through the Elbe valley.

Under the contract the JV will also undertake preparatory works for design phases concerning technical investigation for major bridges and long tunnels. A preliminary economical evaluation, an implementation plan and project publicity services are being provided along with a comparison between Czech, German and European legal procedures.
