Bypass tunnel N8, Lungern

Creation of cable block systems by means of three-dimensionally controlled slipform pavers. A six-unit and nine-unit block are industrially manufactured. The cable protection pipes are automatically drawn into the machine and the concrete block machine-made.

The construction method combines state-of-the-art machines and measurement technology and thus represents a new dimension of cable block systems. The machine has the unique capability worldwide of being able to three-dimensionally integrate cubatures. Any forms can be industrially manufactured thanks to this machine.
