In Germany, tunnel projects with a relatively constant cumulated length of about 170 km per year are to be expected. From the formwork manufacturers’ point of view these projects will be of great interest. At the turn of the year 2015/16, only 13.6 % of tunnel projects were cut-and-cover (Fig. 1), compared to mechanically bored (42.3 %) and the shotcrete method (44.0 %) . The overall European potential is however considerably higher due to the construction of e.g. new underground and rapid transit lines in Paris and London, road tunnels in Norway and submerged tunnels in the Baltic.
