ÖBB Infrastruktur has awarded Pöyry an assignment for site supervision services for the connection of Innsbruck Railway Station into the Brenner Base Tunnel. Pöyry site supervision services are due to start in January 2017 and are scheduled for completion after 2.5 years. The value of the order was not disclosed.
The Brenner Base Tunnel will be operated in left hand traffic mode in the future (the mode used in Italy). The change from left hand to right hand traffic in Austria requires complex construction works to connect the railway station at Innsbruck with the tunnel system.
“This project further strengthens Pöyry’s position in Austria as one of the leading engineering companies delivering high quality site supervision services”, says Thomas Kriesch, Pöyry’s President of Regional Operations in Austria.
