STRABAG AG from Vienna secured the EUR68.40 million contract, excluding VAT, for the restoration and modernization of the 7976 m Caravanche/Karavanke/Karawanken railway tunnel (Lot KRT 1 Karawankentunnel – Construction Technology). The 8 km long tunnel, which was built over 100 years ago, is currently on a two-track layout. To comply with modern safety standards and thereby extend the service life by a further 30 years, the tunnel is being streamlined to single track only. Work is scheduled to last one year, including a nearly seven-month period of full closure.
