The 665 m long, twin-track Untersammelsdorf Tunnel is being built in the course of the construction of the Koralmbahn line between Graz and Klagenfurt. The tunnel is located in extremely challenging subsoil conditions consisting of silty to fine sandy lacustrine deposits. The developed tunneling concept provided wide-ranging special underground engineering measures as piling, jet grouting and temporary struts and represents a unique construction method to date. Accordingly, numerous challenges arose in the design phase, which could be verified by carrying out extensive trials and investigations in the preparatory period or for which fallback levels had to be provided for the support system.
