Once again, DB Netz AG is publishing a book on railway construction with "Infrastructure Projects 2018".
How can we remove and rebuild rail infrastructure faster and better? - That's what the more than 30 papers in this book are about. Levers for faster and better implementation of projects are the acceleration and simplification of approval procedures as well as lean concepts in the construction industry, the introduction of the BIM method and partnership building. Using the example of the metropolitan areas of Berlin, Frankfurt and Munich, this book outlines which challenges population growth and disproportionately increasing economic performance mean for the transport infrastructure and how the transport networks can be made future-proof.
Another focus is investment in the preservation of existing infrastructure. The focus here is on the renewal or upgrading of 875 railway bridges as part of the current performance and financing agreement for the existing network.
