The Zentralbahn

In the initial stage of the construction phase the existing system had to be removed completely. To the extent possible the materials that had been provided by Zentralbahn were pre-assembled prior to the track closure. We then, for the first time, used a helicopter to set and install the mostly pre-assembled poles on the existing foundations and performed all additional assembly works with various rented equipment.

In the section of the newly constructed tracks and the neighbouring area up to the end of the construction site the assembly works for the overhead line system could only be started three days prior to their operation. All adjustment works were completed on time. No reworking measures were required after the track closure.
