The southern portal of the Brandkopf Tunnel, which is 1,493 metres long, is located on the northern side of the Wohlrose Valley. 

It goes under Wohlroser Berg at a maximum depth of 120 metres below the surface, followed by a depression, where it is 50 metres below the surface. It then goes under Vorderer Brandkopf (height: 655 metres) at a maximum depth of around 105 metres from the surface and emerges from the mountain on the south side of the Schobse Valley. The land above the tunnel is mostly managed forest.

Successful project collaboration with EPLASS:

On this particular construction site over 250 people from different disciplines are employed. Furthermore, other designers, checking engineers, and geotechnical engineers are also involved in the project. By using EPLASS Professional all these project participants received access to all relevant documents.

By use of different workflows, both the preliminary as well as the construction phase processes, in addition to the structural analysis, are being reviewed digitally and approved for construction. Via a special interface, the federal railway authority is also involved in the project.

In addition to the design management via EPLASS Professional, the digital construction documentation is being archived within the EPLASS Correspondence document management system (DMS), and also the administration and review procedures of all claims are being processed within the EPLASS Claim Management module.
