A joint venture between Webuild, Italy’s largest construction group, and Swiss engineer Implenia has finalised a €1bn contract to design and build a 23km section of a high-capacity railway between the Brenner Base Tunnel and the commune of Ponte Gardena on the Italian side of the Alps.
The work, most of which will be underground, was commissioned by state-owned rail operator RFI Rete Ferroviaria Italiana. It will also include underground interconnections at Ponte Gardena.
The aim of the project is to quadruple capacity on the line between Verona and Fortezza, along the Munich–Verona railway corridor, significantly reducing travel times for trains carrying people and goods.
