Building Germany’s largest and most innovative infrastructure project

Issue 2 2013 / 2 April 2013 /

The Nuremberg-Berlin Project (VDE 8) is Germany’s largest and most innovative infrastructure project with 56km of tunnel and 27km of viaduct. With the breakthrough in the 824m-long Höhnberg Tunnel in Upper Franconia on 3 August 2012, the last of the 56km of tunnels in this project was completed – a significant milestone in the major new rail link between Munich and Berlin. The core section of the link is a 500km-long new and upgraded line along the Nuremberg–Erfurt–Leipzig/Halle–Berlin route. Investment for the project amounts to €10 billion from the Federal Republic of Germany, the European Union and Deutsche Bahn AG.
