Stuttgart 21:Transport of 8 Million Tonnes of Spoil

“Half of our job is done now and the end of the transport is foreseeable“, stated Wolf-Dieter Tigges, manager of the central construction logistics (ZBL) on the DB project Stuttgart–Ulm.

In addition, about twelve million tonnes of spoil are disposed of directly by the contractors for the currently decentralised logistics areas of Filder and...
