Munich station cut and cover contract awarded

Implenia has announced that it has secured a €400M (£405M) contract, in joint venture with Hochtief, to undertake a new below ground railway station in the centre of Munich, Germany.

Deutsche Bahn has commissioned the partnership to construct the new Marienhof station for a new rail line being built into the city.

The new rail link features a 7km long tunnel that will link Munich’s main station Hauptbahnhof with the eastern hub Ostbahnhof with just the new Marienhof station inbetween to speed up journey times.

The centrally cited station will be built directly beneath the Marienhofplatz publis square using open pit construction techniques and covered by a concrete structure to reform the square at the end of construction.

The station will extend to 40m below ground to take it below the level of the existing U3 and U6 underground lines and feature 210m long platforms.

“This complex infrastructure construction project with demanding special foundation engineering, tunnel construction and solid construction, requires highly specialised technologies and comprehensive know-how,” said Implenia head of business unit infrastructure René Kotacka. “We are delighted that Deutsche Bahn has awarded this contract to Implenia and the partner Hochtief.”
