Extensive track construction work was scheduled for HERING in autumn 2017 in the Frankfurt city area. The service portfolio here ranged from track renewal (> 2 km) to the installation of more than 3,000 concrete sleepers and the laying of over 300 rails measuring 15 metres in length.
The special challenge: a nature reserve in the immediate vicinity of the construction site and, among other things, extremely high demands on logistics.
Further details can be found on the construction site sign.
