Planning and execution of trenchless piping projects

Grabenloser Leitungsbau

Trenchless piping offers a variety of advantages in the railway technology sector – for example for projects involving rail underpasses. We offer every process.

Planning and execution of track construction projects


As part of track-based maintenance and construction projects, the civil engineering specialists from Kummler+Matter Ltd are responsible for some of the more challenging track construction tasks. These activities in and around the track area must be completed in a short amount of time during the day and, primarily, at night.
