Within the city of Leipzig are three over 90-year old bridges which bring the double-tracked, electrified railway line between Leipzig Central Station and Großkorbetha over the rivers Elster, Luppe and Nahle. They were built over 90 years ago and have now reached the end of their lifecycle. To maintain availability of long-distance and regional trains, they will be replaced by three new structures.
A video flying over the construction site shows its progress between June 2019 and September of this year. In the first section, track 1 between Leipzig-Möckern and Leipzig-Leutzsch, the three new railway bridges as well as the overhead cables and signalling installations have again been put into operation in September 2020. In the second construction section on the opposite track, the track has already been fully removed and the bored piles for the new substructures of the bridge over river Luppe are being built.
Completion of the works is predicted in spring 2022.
