About this event

The Stuttgart 21 project, consisting of a new high-speed rail link between Stuttgart and Ulm and a brand new main station in Stuttgart, is one of the largest, most expensive and controversial building projects in Germany. It has already been the subject of a state referendum and will undoubtedly cost far more than originally planned.

However, leaving politics aside, the major engineering challenges presented by moving the new main station underground and building new rail tunnels under the busy state capital of Baden-W├╝rttemberg are of interest to engineers from all all fields.

The IET Germany network has organised a group tour of the building site on Saturday the 23rd of September 2017.

Please join us for a fascinating insight into this major engineering project.
