Hochtief and Zublin win tunnelling work on Denmark’s Cityringen scheme

Copenhagen’s public transport organisation Metroselskabet has awarded a €150m contract to a joint venture of Hochtief and Zublin for work on its new metro system.

Under the deal the joint venture will construct two tunnels and build the Nordhavn station.

The 3.5km of tunnels are split into two sections – one bore measuring 1.8km and the other 1.6km – and will be built using a tunnel boring machine. In addition to the 80m long station tunnel, the contract also includes construction of a small tunnel and a ramp structure, a service shaft/emergency exit and a pedestrian transfer tunnel to existing S-train urban rail station Nordhavn.

Works on the project will start this month and will be completed in 2019.
