Bad Cannstatt Tunnel, Stuttgart, Germany
For the Bad Cannstatt Tunnel and within the framework of the Stuttgart 21 rail project, underground lines with a length of around eight kilometers are being mined for future urban rail and long-distance rail traffic. The tunnel is to connect the main railway station with the new Neckar Bridge. After the tunnel heading works—scheduled to be completed in mid-2020—the inner shell and the railway systems will be put in place. To protect the hermit beetle, it was necessary to partially change the plans for the project.
