In order to be able to inform even faster and more transparently about the current status of EPLASS accesses, EPLASS apps and EPLASS services in future, we have activated a new website status.eplass.de. The analysis from last Friday's technical issue showed that, in addition to the technical measures already implemented, there was also room for improvement in communication. Although a message was posted on our website in a timely manner, it was not possible to determine which accesses/services had been disrupted and, above all, which ones were still working.

This will be easier to see on status.eplass.de in the future. In addition, you will be able to see when a status changes and which processes we are currently working on. Of course, we will continue to inform you via our website if there are serious breakdowns, but in the future we will refer you to the details at status.eplass.de.

On Friday morning EPLASS had a technical issue with the Active Directory, despite the measures taken to ensure system stability, which meant that it was not possible to log on to the system. The error has been fixed by now. It concerned the failure of a technical system without external influence. A data loss did not occur! From now on it is possible to work with EPLASS again. If you still encounter any errors, please contact our hotline. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. An analysis is already underway to determine what conclusions can be drawn from the problem in order to avoid it in the future..

Together with its partner thinkproject Austria, EPLASS takes over a first BIM pilot project of ASFiNAG in the province of Styria. One focus is on the practical feasibility of actually getting selected BIM use cases to the construction site. This is sometimes achieved by the strong combination of the BIM solution DESITE with the project platform EPLASS CDE.

In Murtal, the S36 highway between Judenburg and St. Georgen is being extended. The plan is to extend the road with three underfloor routes close to the existing road and thus massively reduce the traffic load on the B317 and thus on the community of St. Peter ob Judenburg and the districts of Rothenthurm and Wöll. The overall project covers a distance of 12 km and will cost around 368 million euros. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2024 and be completed in 2029. The BIM pilot project currently includes the new St. Georgen base in TA 02 St. Georgen-Scheifling.

Visualization of the Riederwald tunnel

In a european tender EPLASS has been awarded the largest inner-city xonstruction project of Hessen-Mobil: The filling of the gap of the A 66 and the Frankfurt A 661 eastern bypass as well as the construction of the Riederwald tunnel. The project volume amounts to approx. 477 million Euro.

While up to 22,200 vehicles per day pass through the Riederwald district on average without the tunnel on the "Am Ehrlenbruch" road, this figure drops by around 36 percent to an average of 14,200 vehicles per day with the tunnel. In addition, every second heavy transport vehicle will be eliminated in future. The lower traffic density will reduce traffic congestion and shorten travel times.

The planned 2.2-kilometer-long section of motorway consists of several submeasures:

The new railway connection between the two metropolitan regions Dresden-Prague has opted for the digital drawing management of EPLASS.

A new double-track line is planned between the two towns of Heidenau and Ústí nad Labem. The core element of the line is a base tunnel through the Ore Mountains that will be at least 25 kilometers long and run across the state border. The new line will make it possible to travel between Dresden and Prague in about one hour. It is thus also an important section of the pan-European rail network. Deutsche Bahn is working closely with the Czech Rail Infrastructure Administration SŽDC. A joint planning contract is being drawn up to regulate the planning for the construction of the cross-border tunnel.

With this additional international project, EPLASS once again demonstrates its strength in the infrastructure sector.
