Road repair costs increase for German project

First published04/05/2018
Rebuilding a stretch of the A20 Autobahn in Germany is now costing more than originally expected. The work to upgrade the A20 in the North East of the country had a budget of €100 million when planned. However the cost of the work has increased considerably. The work is now likely to cost €150 million and should be complete by 2021. One issue with the improvement work is with regard to a bridge lying close to Tribsees. This requires driving 1.2m diameter piles to a depth of 24m to support the structure. However the location where the piles are to be driven lies in a patch of extremely soft ground that is unable to support the weight of the 120tonne piling rig brought in to carry out the work.
