Railway Tunnel Bossler
The currently built Boßlertunnel will be the longest tunnel of the presently new-built railway section Wendlingen – Ulm (Germany). With its length of approx. 9 km it will moreover be one of the longest tunnels in Germany. When the construction will be finished, trains will rush through two one-railed tubes, many times a day.
To withstand this permanent load for years and grant safety to passengers and personal, the used material has to be absolutely reliable.
ATG Deutschland GmbH delivers welded tube-reinforcement-cages for this building project.
These are produced on-site by ATG-Deutschland GmbH from pre-fabricated reinforcement-elements and reinforcing-steel. After that, the cages are handed over to our customer, in order to be concreted to obtain the tube-elements, which are used to build the tunnel tubes.
After a tunnel boring machine milled section by section out of the mountain, these elements are mounted to a tunnel tube. So the tubes are able to withstand pressure and vibration permanently and grant a save thoroughfare.
