THG, subsidiary of ETF (Eurovia) in Germany, has been awarded two railway works contracts by Deutsche Bahn worth a total €67m.
The first contract concerns the redevelopment of the Bonn Beuel station, built in 1871, where work will begin in the first quarter of 2021 with completion scheduled for 2023.
It involves renovating two lines and platforms, building two underground footpaths, developing accessible routes for persons with reduced mobility and installing noise barriers.
The second contract is to renovate 8km of track and build 3.3km of new track on the line connecting Leverkusen-Rheindorf to Langenfeld-Berghausen.
Once that work has been completed, trains will be able to travel at speeds of up to 160km/h.
The contract also involves installing over 8,000 sq m of noise barriers.
