Planning contract for part of the Brenner North Approach
The Munich-Innsbruck rail line is a main axis of international rail traffic. It is the most important connection from southern Germany to Tyrol (Austria) and serves as a feeder to the Brenner Pass. The Brenner Pass, for its part, is the most frequented connection between Austria and Italy. It is one of the four most important routes of Alpine transit. In addition to continuous long-distance lines, freight trains in particular run to and from Italy via this route.
According to EU Regulation No. 1316/2013, the Munich-Innsbruck-Verona rail route is part of the Scandinavia-Mediterranean Corridor (RFC 3 / CORE 5 / TEN-T).
In the "Memorandum of Montreux", the transport ministers of Austria, Italy and Germany agreed in June 1994 on the gradual realization of the feeder lines and the Brenner Base Tunnel. At the end of 2012, the expansion of the Austrian Inn Valley between Kundl/Radfeld and Baumkirchen was put into operation. The construction of the Brenner Base Tunnel began in 2014.
Innleiten-Kirnstein planning section: part of the " Contract of Rosenheim"
On June 15, 2012, the transport ministries of Austria and Germany concluded an intergovernmental agreement on coordinated planning for the expansion of the cross-border rail link ("Contract of Rosenheim") in order to expand the northern feeder line from Munich via Rosenheim to the German-Austrian border and on to Innsbruck in a timely manner and in line with demand.
The Brenner northern access route is intended to create the necessary capacity to shift traffic from road to rail and so relieve the highly loaded Inntal autobahn in particular.
The approximately 25 km long planning section between Innleiten and Kirnstein is part of the Brenner-Nordzulauf. It is located east of Rosenheim between the Inn crossing at Stephanskirchen and the junction in the Inn Valley. The new line is part of the Rosenheim bypass.
The planning includes the Ringelfeld and Steinkirchen tunnels, as well as the technical equipment for the tunnels, the planning of the rail and road sections for the above-ground routing, and the structural engineering section with the object and structural design for the new construction of flyover structures, troughs, noise barriers and retaining structures. The Steinkirchen tunnel is around 13 kilometers long. There is currently no longer tunnel in Germany. Even after completion, the structures will be among the longest underground transport links in the Federal Republic.
OBERMEYER and Amberg Engineering are awarded with planning contract
Both OBERMEYER and Amberg Engineering have already been involved in projects around the Brenner Pass and the extension of the railroad line between Munich and Innsbruck: "With this planning contract, we are allowed to make another important contribution to the improvement of the cross-border rail infrastructure after our activities in the Lower Inn Valley and on the Brenner Base Tunnel. Together with our partner Amberg Engineering, we are pleased to accept the challenge of optimally implementing the customer's objectives in dialog with the public," explains Dipl.-Ing. Erhard Lederhofer, Managing Director of OBERMEYER Infrastruktur.
"We at Amberg Engineering are also looking forward to the exciting work on the Brenner North Approach in addition to our ongoing project on the Brenner Base Tunnel. The existing good cooperation with OBERMEYER can be newly strengthened in this way", adds Dr. Franz Pacher" (CEO Amberg Engineering AG).
Digital Planning with Building Information Modeling
As a BIM company, the OBERMEYER Group focuses on the sustainable development of digital planning methods and therefore the BIM methodology in overall infrastructure planning projects with the aid of modern technologies. Clients benefit from extensive experience with digital planning workflows.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is also being used on a contractually binding basis in the Brenner-Nordzulauf project. "We are very pleased to be able to demonstrate our planning expertise in such an exposed DB overall planning project. In addition, we can jointly enhance the BIM methodology in infrastructure planning together with the project participants," explains Dipl.Ing. Christoph Heiter, OBERMEYER Infrastructure, Munich branch.
The OBERMEYER Group is one of the largest independent German planning companies and has been an expert in overall planning and qualified specialist planning for more than 60 years.
With over 1,400 employees worldwide, OBERMEYER provides planning services in the fields of buildings, infrastructure and building services engineering. Together with the scientific research institutes, almost all specialist fields of engineering and construction planning are covered.
Inspired by the innovation spirit of its founder Leonhard Obermeyer, the company creates intelligent, forward-looking solutions using the latest digital tools and agile methods.
