An approximately three km long tunnel is being built north of the city of Luxemburg. It is part of the new section of the "Route du Nord" and consists of two tunnels from which one three-lane and one two-lane tunnel have a gradient of almost 4,5%. The tunnelling work is being performed using conventional construction methods and explosives. The tunnel connects the Heeschdrëfferbierg plateau in the south and the Alzettetal near Lorentzweiler in the north. This will create a section connecting to the important north-south track in Luxemburg.
Open drainage during tunnelling and construction in the open with the help of submersible pumps.
