Steel-Fibre-Reinforced Tunnel Segments Improve Carbon Footprint

Although the use of steel fibres for shotcrete or concrete segments can significantly improve the CO2 footprint, their use is still not widespread in Europe. The example of construction lot 16-1 of the Grand Paris Express (GPE) rapid transit network in France shows how the interaction of innovatively thinking construction partners not only creates cost savings, but also benefits the environment.

This was precisely the case with the extension of underground line 5 into the “Europaviertel” district in Frankfurt am Main (Germany): In the highly sensitive, densely built-up inner city location, the tunnel construction work had to be carried out without damaging the existing buildings and without obstructing the above-ground traffic.
