20.08.2021 | Groundbreaking for the expansion of the B2 between Eschenlohe and Oberau North

The groundbreaking has taken place: in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, the bottleneck at the end of the A95 highway is being eliminated. The festivities on August 19 were attended by the Federal Minister of Transportation Andreas Scheuer, among others.

The bottleneck will be eliminated via the four-lane expansion of the B2. The new construction will close the gap between the current end of the A95 highway near Eschenlohne and the Oberau tunnel in the Oberau Nord region. Construction of the twin-tube, 1.9-kilometer-long Auerberg Tunnel has been approved as part of the major project. According to the current status, completion of the gap closure between Eschenlohe and Oberau Nord with the construction of the tunnel is targeted for 2028.

EDR GmbH, together with the engineering firm Müller + Hereth, has been commissioned with the design planning of the tunnel structure (project planning and structural design). In addition, EDR was awarded the contract for the execution planning in the structural design for the preliminary measure Pre-Cut South within the scope of this project.
