Port Authority of Rotterdam Awards Construction Contract

The Port Authority of Rotterdam has awarded VolkerRail the contract to built the superstructure of the new Theemsweg line.

VolkerRail will install the superstructure in close collaboration with ProRail, the national rail infrastructure manager. Work on this project is expected to start in the latter half of 2020. The project entails the construction of track, overhead lines and various aspects to do with the train protection systems.

The SaVe consortium (consisting of BESIX, Mobilis, Dura Vermeer, Hollandia and Iemants) has been building the substructure for the 4km concrete viaduct and two steel-arched bridges since mid-2018. Once the Theemsweg line is complete, it will connect up to existing rail infrastructure at the A15.
