Expanding the Nuremberg Metro

After commissioning two new Metro stations in Nuremberg, Germany, in mid-2008, two further construction sections for an extension were originally planned. One of these two sections – BBA 2.1 from Gustav Adolf Straße to Großreuth near Schweinau – has now been revised and adapted following legal proceedings before the Bavarian Administrative Court prior to being subsequently put on offer for a contract volume of 51 million euros. The contract was awarded to Bilfinger Construction. The project is due to begin in 2015 and should be completed in 2019.⇥G.B.
