Expansion of Föhringer Ring Road in Munich

SSF Groupe contracted for project management, construction management, on-site construction supervision and geotechnical reports

Föhringer ring road in north Munich is a central east-west connection in the city. Due to the structural and economic development of Munich’s northern quarters, this section of the ring road has become a bottleneck in the last couple of years. Currently, on weekdays around 45,000 vehicles pass the road – traffic prognoses predict 65,000 vehicles by 2035. The existing, already highly stressed road has not been designed for such a traffic volume.

Plan approval for the expansion will be adapted to the current requirements in two layers. Since 2019, preparatory works for the road expansion are taking place, significantly relieving the tight situation. The existing 2-lane route will be expanded to 4 lanes on 1.9 kilometres, Herzog-Heinrich Bridge built in 1962 over river Isar will be replaced and elongated, and entry and exit lanes will accelerate traffic flow. In addition to the existing Herzog-Heinrich Bridge, a new Isar bridge will be built.

In 2018, SSF Ingenieure has assumed project management and supports the Federal Construction Authority Freising during draft and approval design as well as tendering of the construction lots. Together with SSF Ingenieure, Wagner Ingenieure and Baugeologisches Büro Bauer, both part of the SSF Groupe, participate at the project. The engineering office Wagner Ingenieure is responsible for draft and approval design of traffic installations as well as partial production of tender documents; Baugeologisches Büro Bauer implements construction soil analyses and produces geotechnical reports.

Moreover, since April 2023, SSF Ingenieure in joint venture with IB Dost has been contracted for construction management and on-site supervision of the overall project comprising five bridges, noise barriers and road construction.
