Züblin secures geotechnically challenging £163M German motorway scheme

Züblin has announced that it has been appointed to deliver a 6km section of the A44 highway between Kassel and Herlewshausen in Germany under a €183M (£163M) deal.

Central to the project is the twin tube 1.7km long Boyneburg tunnel, which will be connected by sections of carriageway at either end to close a gap in the federal highway network between the A4 and A7.

According to Züblin, the 2.3km road at the northern end of the tunnel and 2.1km section to the south will require extensive civil engineering and ground engineering works. The work includes of five underpasses and ramp structures, seven bearing walls or retaining structures and three bridges.

Züblin has confirmed that STRABAG Large-Scale Projects South-East will work alongside its ground engineering and tunneling divisions to deliver the project.

This scheme is the third section of the A44 awarded to Züblin and its subsidiaries since 2016. Züblin is involved in the construction of the Trimberg tunnel which is part of the section between Waldkappel and Ringgau and Strabag is been executing construction works for a 700 m long highway bridge over the Hessian community Wehretal.
