LZK-Project

Cost optimization for sustainability: With knowledge of life cycle costs, ASTRA can optimize the costs of building and maintaining national roads over their entire service life. This enables better, economically sustainable use of the financial resources available. Together with ASTRA, R+R is preparing documentation that describes the method for estimating and applying life cycle costs for the structural infrastructure from the operator's perspective. The focus is on the planning level and applicability by project managers and project teams.

N01.22 Motorway section Schönbühl – Kirchberg, Lindenrain rest area upgrade

The service building at the Lindenrain motorway rest area has been equipped with a new toilet module made of chrome steel; construction was completed at the end of 2023. The new toilet module offers better protection against vandalism, and it will be possible to continue its use in the event of a future replacement of the service building. R+R supported the Federal Road Office’s overall project manager in project planning and execution.

ERTMS Netherlands

Other countries, same problems: Modern railway technology requires time and money to implement. Jost Lüking was member of a team of six European experts on the ETCS train control system who assessed the status of the national ETCS program for the Dutch Parliament in mid-2023. Our Second Opinion formulated recommendations on program governance and management, on the technical, spatial and temporal scope of the program, on system integration and integration management, and last but not least on program costs and their current forecast. The Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Waterways published the Second Opinion at the beginning of November.

EP Hagnau – Augst N02

Within the Hagnau – Augst motorway maintenance project, structural changes to the western tunnel portal (direction Basel/Germany) have to be carried out to enable longitudinal ventilation in both traffic directions. We are pleased that the plans for the extension of the western portal of Schweizerhalle tunnel have officially been approved. This allows us to finalise the detailed design and approach the contractor submission process according to our project schedule.

Rail Baltica Rail AS

RAIL BALTICA CCS SUBSYSTEM PROCUREMENT AND DEPLOYMENT STRATEGY

Rail Baltica creates an efficient rail link between the Baltic capitals and connects them to the EU rail network. R+R advised the customer on the procurement of a train management and control system and provided information on how to organize this sub-project.

Today there is no efficient rail link between the capitals of the three Baltic states or between the Baltic States and the other EU countries. The new highspeed line Rail Baltica will create this link and connect to the EU rail network at the Polish border. The future train management and control system was the subject of a technical and organizational study. R+R helped with the market analysis and the procurement strategy and provided examples of a suitable project organization.
