Grontmij has announced its involvement in a major infrastructure project in Stuttgart, Germany. The German Government has approved the go ahead of Stuttgart 21 which brings an important module of the TEN-T Project 17 Paris - Bratislava into realisation.
The Stuttgart 21 project comprises the replacement of the main station, along with tunneling under the entire city. The outcome of the project will be reduced journey times of over half an hour by removing the current bottle-neck at the station. Grontmij is providing planning and tender management services. Total costs are estimated to be more than EUR6 billion.
Grontmij's contract sum for the current phase of the project is over EUR5.5 million. On completion of this phase, there is potential for Grontmij to be appointed on the subsequent construction supervision phase which will last until 2019.
