Earth cutting for the Koralm tunnel near Graz

In Frauental an der Lassnitz near Graz, the earth cutting for the Koralm tunnel occurred on 20th March 2009. The tunnel, which will be 33 kilometers in length, is the longest in Austria and forms the core of the Koralm railway. The Koralm railway is currently the largest project in the extension of the Austrian rail network. The company Rädlinger Bauunternehmen Ges.m.b.H was instructed with the earthworks and road construction. The construction and tunnel driving work, starting from the eastern portal in the direction of Kaernten, was initiated with the earth cutting for the first construction lot.

The project of the century is of enormous importance for Styria and the development of southern Austria. With the Koralm railway, a new double-track, high-performance route 130 kilometers long will result, which will establish for the first time a direct connection between the central areas of Graz and Klagenfurt. The travel time between Klagenfurt and Graz, which is currently about three hours, will be reduced to slightly more than one hour. The accessibility of the economically important and tourist location will therefore be enormously improved.
