Oerlikon integration- Subsection 4.006
|Company||PORR SUISSE AG in consortium|
|Location||Oerlikon - Switzerland|
|Runtime||04.2010 - 02.2016|
The cross-city line from Altstetten through Zurich's central railway station to Oerlikon is a railway stretch of just 10km. This line passes beneath the central railway station at the Löwenstrasse underground station.
As part of the finishing works on section 4 (Oerlikon integration, subsection 4.006), PORR was contracted by the Schweizerischen Bundesbahnen to perform comprehensive civil engineering works right next to the still-operating platforms.
- Site facilities
- Salvage and plant room construction
- Tunnel mouth construction
- New construction of Regensburg bridge
- Supporting walls on West, Middle and Hofwiesenstrasse
The section between Oerlikon and Zurich central railway station went into operation in mid-June 2014. Intercity trains from the west of Switzerland have also been using this stretch since 2015 to travel on into the east of Switzerland.
Night works on the 100-year-old Regensburg bridge involved the use of a tracked crane to remove the old bridge in three sections and, ultimately, replace it with a new and longer structure.© PORR
The addition of two new platforms meant a new bridge was needed. The old bridge was too short to cross what is now an 18m array of platforms.© PORR
In order to complete the construction scheme as quickly as possible, the PORR team continued work at nights and on weekends.© PORR
