What is a spot opportunity

Positive feedback and request for repetition, inspection of the tunnel boring machine planned for April.

The association Bahnprojekt Stuttgart-Ulm e.V. successfully concluded the three days of the open construction site with over 30,000 visitors today, Wednesday, January 6th, 2016. "We were convinced that our concept was good and that it would be accepted by the citizens," said Georg Brunnhuber, chairman of the association, on the occasion of the number of visitors. "We are all the more pleased about the confirmation and the praise of the guests." The engineers, specialists and organizers have received a lot of positive feedback and the wish for a repeat next year has often been expressed. "The rail project has not only made a visible impression in the city, it is also accepted with interest by the majority of the citizens," Brunnhuber continued. “We will open the gates again in 2017, because direct information about current and upcoming construction work is more important to most visitors than backward-looking discussions. I would like to thank everyone who worked hard for these three days, all employees of the project company and the contractors and my team. "

From Monday, January 4th, 2016 up to and including Wednesday, January 6th, 2016, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., the Stuttgart – Ulm rail project invited interested parties to what is probably the most famous construction site of the project at and around Stuttgart Central Station for the first time . From the Kriegsberg to the planetarium, visitors were able to walk on the project's own construction roads away from the public roads from construction site to construction site, to the chalice support or to the excavation pit of the Nesenbach culvert and to speak to the engineers and workers on site. The guided tours through the groundwater purification system were numerically the biggest visitor magnets, as was the construction of the branching structure below the Kriegsberg. The Holodeck, which is unique in Europe and presented to the general public for the first time by the Stuttgart-Ulm Railway Project Association together with the Stuttgart-based company Lightshape GmbH & Co. KG, impressed with its pioneering technology and took visitors to a different time and space: they had the opportunity to move around virtually in the new main station and in the newly designed Bonatz building.

Another open construction site day is planned for April 2016 on the construction site at the Filder tunnel portal in Stuttgart-Fasanenhof, shortly before the “SUSE” tunnel boring machine makes its second ascent.
