Reference project track construction: VGF Frankfurt/Main Reversing loop

In addition to the track construction work on the line Waldfriedhof - Rheinlandstraße (Lots 1+2), HERING also realised the reversing loop project (Lot 3) for VGF in September and October 2017.

The installation of a reversing loop with a radius of 22 meters is considered a special challenge and a central achievement of this project. In addition, for example, 165 m of grooved track were renewed and over 1,000 tons of frost protection material was installed.

Further details can be found on the construction site sign.
