HOCHTIEF to build A7 Tunnel in Hamburg-Stellingen for EUR 154 million
HOCHTIEF Infrastructure to construct noise protection tunnel in joint venture
The future noise protection structure is part of the extension of the A7 highway in Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein. Tunnel Stellingen is roughly one kilometer long. With HOCHTIEF as technical leader, the joint venture will construct two cut-and-cover tunnel tubes with five lanes each and one emergency lane. The tunnel is one of three noise protection tunnels, the "Hamburger Deckel", which will be built within the framework of the expansion project.
"We are delighted to be able to bring in our execution competence into a further section of the A7. With this noise protection program, we offer the citizens of Hamburg better quality of life in the future", says Nikolaus Graf von Matuschka, CEO of HOCHTIEF Solutions.
HOCHTIEF had already achieved financial close for planning, financing, expanding, operating and maintaining the A7 section from Neumünster-Nord to Hamburg-Nordwest as early as August 2014. In addition, HOCHTIEF is also building the Langenfeld bridge on the A7 in Hamburg-Stellingen.
