Tunnel under Gent-Dampoort railway line - Ghent

Description 

The construction project involves the construction of a new cycle and pedestrian tunnel under the railway line, a new coach park and work in the surrounding areas at the Gent-Dampoort station. A new tunnel is being built under the track to create a safer cycling connection. The cycle paths are largely being installed using a concrete U-passage. The new tunnel under the track is realised using the box jacking method, with the tunnel going through the railway embankment. The jacked tunnel is 23m long.

 

Since 1998 Franki Construct has been part of Willemen Groep, the largest family construction group in Belgium.
