In the lower Inn valley in the Tyrol, the existing railway line is being widened to four tracks as part of the TEN (Trans European Network) section Munich-Verona. The Brenner Railway Company has appointed the joint venture Porr Tunnelbau - Max Bögl for the construction of the section H3-4. At the time of writing the article, two thirds of the 5.8 km long tunnelled section had been bored, with daily advance rates of up to 32 m being achieved. A Hydroshield is being used to bore the main tunnel with a diameter of 13.03 m. The tunnel gradient lies completely under the groundwater table. For long stretches, the tunnel route runs through loose sandy or gravelly soil with high and very changeable permeability. At the borders of the contract section, silty clay soil dominates.
