ROUNDUP: Protests against railway after tunnel breaking – further construction of the tube planned News

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017 | bitcoin updates

RASTATT (dpa-AFX) – After the break-in of a tunnel in Rastatt in the state of Baden-Württemberg, Deutsche Bahn is in the grip of criticism. Eberhard Hohnecker, a professor of railway technology at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, suggested in talks with the "Stuttgarter Zeitung" and the "Stuttgarter Nachrichten" (Thursday) that there was no need for massive steel girders in tunnel construction. Matthias Gastel, the Green Railway expert, is concerned about the long closure of the Rhine valley railway line. Passengers are looking for alternatives such as long-distance buses or car trips. The train decided to reject Hohnecker's criticism. "For us, there are only facts and no blank guesswork," said a railway speaker. "The assumption that steel beams are not installed in the tunnel alone is without foundation, because the world-wide approved tunnel tunneling method does not require the installation of steel beams in the tunnel." Experts and appraisers would thoroughly work on the event. The route on which up to 200 freight trains, as well as long-haul and short-haul transports will be driven daily, will not be reopened until 7 October. On the 12th of August, water and soil had penetrated into one of the two tunnel tubes, and the two rail strands sagged above it. The course was immediately closed. The railway informed Wednesday that the filling of the tunnel in the damage area should be completed with 10 500 cubic meters of concrete by Friday. After that, the old track bed was removed and an approximately 120-meter-long and one-meter-thick slab was concreted, which had to harden for about three weeks. Then new tracks, sleepers and gravel could be installed. The railway board for large projects, Dirk Rompf, announced that the tunnel is to be completed. When and with what technical procedure is examined. "We are firmly assuming that the tunneling works will continue," said Rompf. To the damage he said: "This has not been possible." Prior to this, Baden-Württemberg's Transport Minister Winfried Hermann (Greens) had been informed about the situation at the construction site. He could understand the measures and decisions of Deutsche Bahn after the damage of 12 August, Hermann said. One consequence would now be the expansion of the rail network, in order to allow for alternative routes. The future federal government would have to submit as soon as possible a concept for the rehabilitation, modernization and extension of the rail network in Germany. "It is a revenge that the rail network has been thinned down for decades." Green rail expert Gastel criticized the fact that there were too few evasion possibilities and the railway traffic would prove to be unreliable in the case of disturbances. Suggestions such as the expansion and electrification of the Hochrheinbahn and the Bodenseegürtelbahn were enough. Gastel accused Federal Minister of Transport Alexander Dobrindt (CSU) to block the projects. Passengers are clearly looking for alternatives. The Fernbusanbieter Flixbus has since the beginning of the stretch lock in comparison with the previous month a plus of about 20 percent of passengers registered. At the moment, however, no additional buses are required, said a spokesman for the company. The prices have not increased. Also private rides are now more frequently used. Compared to the week before the train break, the French carpooling center Blablacar has recorded some substantial increases in supply and demand. Between 12 and 18 August, for example, there was twice as much utilization of the offered carpool on the Basel-Mannheim route, as a spokeswoman said. At the end of the summer holidays in Baden-Württemberg the bus transport between Rastatt and Baden-Baden still has Once expanded, railway manager Sven Hantel announced. "We are faced with major challenges after vacationers." / Lem / DP / stb
