Total Contract is Worth 177 Million Euros
The total contract is worth 177 million euros. The project starts with preparatory work in autumn 2022 and will last about four years.
The existing tunnel tubes are no longer big enough to accommodate today’s traffic, so they are being enlarged: the road surface is being lowered by 30cm and the new suspended ceiling is being made higher. In order to increase safety standards, 22 new emergency bays are being built into the second tube, while the 24 emergency bays in the first tunnel are being renovated.
All of this work will be carried out with a special focus on occupational health and safety, and sustainability. The confined space in and around the tunnel presents a particular challenge for site logistics, and especially for delivery and removal of materials.
