The Tunnel Rastatt runs under the entire urban area of Rastatt as well as neighbouring floodplains of 4.270 meters length (Federbachniederung). This tunneling of the urban area relieves the residents from the noise of passing trains in the future. In addition it provides an environment-friendly crossing of two little streams (Murg and Federbach). The Tunnel is designed for a speed of 250 km/h.

The Tunnel Rastatt is part of planning section 1.2 of the expansion and new construction line Karlsruhe–Basel. In November 2012 the Federal Railway Authority (Eisenbahn- Bundesamt) has approved the plan amendment for the new emergency and rescue concept of the Rastatt Tunnel. (Source: DB Netz AG)

The EPLASS BIM – project platform for BIM-Pilot-Projects innitiated by the German Federal Ministry of Transport and digital infrastructure.

The project „Tunnel Rastatt“ is the first German Railway (DB Netz AG) project, which uses the government-funded Building Information Modeling (BIM). This tunnel is the largest of four nationwide funded pilot projects, for which the potential of this new digital working method is being tested. BIM provides a three-dimensional view, which simulates planning, the building process and the operation of the tunnel. Thus the participants and the involved parties get an early and realistic planning overview. The model does not only show geometric information, but also the building schedule and costs. From this pre-recorded simulation of building processes and cost schedules, it is possible to take early counter measures in the case of threatening extra costs.

The use of the same information- and data platform improves the network and communication for all project participants. So far, the experience with BIM in the Rastatt Tunnel project is consistently positive. It improves the planning quality and therefore the DB Netz AG (German Rail) decided to apply BIM for all their major projects. (Source: DB Netz AG)
