The contract announced on January 12 covers the installation of 118 km of slab track, of which 60 km will be in tunnel, 16 turnouts, power suppliers, telecoms, 2 500 km of cabling, signage, ventilation equipment and 78 km of LED handrail.
The project is split into two lots, one covering the Albvorland section from Wendlingen to the Alb ascent between Weilheim and Hohenstadt, and the second the Alb plateau from Widderstall to the descent into Ulm.
The work is expected to take 30 months, with the Rhomberg Sera business unit taking the technical lead and Swietelsky the commercial lead
