Bilfinger Berger has won two major contracts for the expansion of Berlin’s public transport system.
The contracts include the construction of a new underground rail line in the centre of the German capital and a link between the main station and the urban rail ring.
They have a combined value of around €230 million.
The new U5 line will link Alexanderplatz with the main station and connect Brandenburg Gate to the existing section of the U55.
The project, on behalf of Berlin’s transportation authority, comprises the construction of two tunnel tubes approximately 1.6 kilometers in length along with framework construction work for a track-switching system and two new stations.
For the new stretch of the S 21, which will connect the main station to Berlin’s ring line in a north-south direction, a joint venture under the leadership of Bilfinger Berger will construct, on behalf of Deutsche Bahn, a trough structure and several tunnel sections.
