CDM Smith Monitors Construction Work on Munich's New S-Bahn Tunnel
Up to now, the railway tunnel ends beneath Terminal 2. However, the tunnel is to be extended by 1.8 kilometers by mid 2021, followed by the extension of the railway line to Erding, above ground. In addition, a new stop “Schwaigerloh”, including parking and turning facilities, will be built. Munich Airport is investing around EUR 115 million in this tunnel project, which is an important step in connecting Munich Airport with the region.
Currently the construction site is being cleared and prepared. The construction work should start in the second quarter of 2018. As a leading member of an engineering company, CDM Smith has been entrusted with site management and construction supervision. We are supervising the construction of civil engineering structures, traffic facilities and technical equipment, ensure quality, costs and deadlines and document the construction progress. As construction supervisors for railways, we also coordinate interlinked work during construction, check and document intermediate acceptance tests and monitor operational safety.
CDM Smith provides lasting and integrated solutions in water, environment, transportation, energy and facilities to public and private clients worldwide. As a full-service engineering and construction firm, we deliver exceptional client service, quality results and enduring value across the entire project life cycle.
This Munich beacon project will improve the connection of the entire region of Southeast Bavaria and the state of Salzburg in Austria with the airport.
