Railway line upgrade

for more performance and increased travel speed

The railway line between Nuremberg and Bamberg is part of the high-speed line between Munich and Berlin and some parts of it are currently expanded to four tracks. A majority of the VDE 8 (German Reunification Transport Projects) line between Munich and Berlin has already been completed between 2011 and 2017.

In the context of the line upgrade Nuremberg-Bamberg, the VDE 8.1 is expanding the highly frequented route. Currently, construction works are ongoing to close one of the last gaps in the line: the at this moment still 2-tracked section between Nuremberg and Bamber is also expanded to four tracks and upgraded to accommodate speeds of up to 230 km/h. The project is an important contributor to a modern infrastructure and strong railway transportation. In the future, slow and fast traffic will be separated which leads to increased capacity on the rail tracks. More information about the railway project VDE 8.1 can be found under www.bahnausbau-nuernberg-bamberg.de.

Contracted by Leonhard Weiss GmbH & Co. KG, SSF Ingenieure signs responsible amongst other for the track design of a 3-kilometre-long section in the fields of superstructure, foundations, drainage, rainwater treatment as well as the central platform Strullendorf and two other temporary platforms. Design of roads and lanes is implemented by Wagner Ingenieure, a member of the SSF Group.

Currently, several measures at the existing tracks are ongoing. In the meantime, traffic is directed to the newly built tracks. Overall completion of this section is planned for the end of 2025.
