Oslo T-bane CBTC-Project

After two tendering rounds with, at first, four tenderers, Sporveien, the operator of Oslo City’s public transport system, awarded the contract for equipping the metro with a CBTC system to Siemens. R+R has edited the price formats, evaluated the commercial tenders, and supported the negotiations. At the same time, in the Datalink sub-project, Sporveien procures the communication services and the necessary upgrading of the communication infrastructure.

A1, Extension of the Zurich Northern Bypass

Twenty years ago, a serious fire disaster occurred in the Gotthard motorway tunnel. To commemorate this event, the «SRF Aktuell» TV program has produced a report on road tunnel safety in Switzerland, which was broadcast on October 21, 2021. Many lessons have been learned from this disaster. By using the third tube of the Gubrist tunnel, now under construction, as an example, the FEDRO project managers explain recent developments concerning the safety of road tunnels.

A1, Extension of the Zurich Northern Bypass

The main construction work for the Weiningen motorway exit and the covered road section will start on August 16, 2021. The Weiningen exit will be relocated and moved around 200m closer to the Limmattalerkreuz junction. In addition, all three Gubrist tunnel tubes will be extended by a new 100m covered motorway section. This will reduce the noise and pollution levels of the adjacent residential areas. From mid-August, the top pavement layer of the roadway in the new third Gubrist tunnel tube will be installed over a period of approximately 3 weeks. Thus, most of the construction work will have been completed. In autumn 2021, installation of the traffic control and safety systems for the third Gubrist tunnel tube will start.

ERTMS PROGRAMME NORWAY

Norway intends to replace its entire national railway signalling system by 2032 and switch to the European Train Control System (ETCS) Level 2. The program covers approximately 4‘400 kilometres of track and 500 vehicles.

R+R’s involvement in Norway’s national ERTMS implementation programme on behalf of the Norwegian railway infrastructure operator Bane Nor started in 2013. R+R devised the programme budget, which was independently assessed and accepted without reservation by the governmental department and parliament. In addition, R+R developed life cycle cost models and conducted cost-benefit analyses for comparing different contract strategies.

R+R managed the commercial portion of the procurement of the signalling system, traffic management system and on-board equipment. The repective contracts were finally awarded in 2018. R+R is keeping the estimate of final costs up-to-date and examines budget change requests.
