Major tunnelling work planned on OHL Czech rail upgrade

OHL has secured a contract, which includes construction of two new tunnels, to modernise the Sudoměřice-Votice railway line in the Czech Republic and cut rail travel times.

The €172M (£150M) scheme is part of the 2014-2020 Transport Operative Program and is cofinanced by the European Structural and Investment Funds and by the Czech Republic State Transport Infrastructure fund.

In the section from Sudoměřice u Tábora to Votice a second track, two new tunnels and a railway station will be built. The new 840m long Mezno and 660m long Deboreč tunnels, which are to be built using the New Austrian Tunnelling Method, are essential to the scheme’s target of cutting travel times from Prague to Tábor to one hour.

The project is due to be completed in July 2021.
