To improve traffic flows and increase people’s mobility, new and efficient road links are being built in and between cities. Innovative Herrenknecht tunnelling systems are paving the way for new roads worldwide – economically, quickly and safely.
Investments in the development of road infrastructure are increasing steadily. By 2040, around 1.3 trillion US Dollars will be invested worldwide.
With us, tunnel construction and road traffic do not come to a standstill
Herrenknecht tunnelling technology is used to build efficient road tunnels that allow the traffic to flow on important transport routes and in major cities.
Earth Pressure Balance Shields, Mixshields and Hard Rock TBMs from Herrenknecht support the construction of efficient new road tunnels, for urban traffic, long-distance traffic, or both. As part of the construction and extension of these routes, more than 375 kilometers of road tunnel tubes have been produced worldwide using innovative tunnelling technology from Herrenknecht. Building upon this unique expertise and experience, we work closely with our customers and develop tailor-made technical solutions to overcome all challenges and create robust, sustainable tunnel structures – to budget and on schedule, while maximizing safety for the people and the environment.
