  • As part of the Emmerich — Oberhausen expansion line project, DB E&C has taken over construction supervision for the insertion of the prefabricated bridge structure over the Rhine-Herne Channel. After eight months of construction, the steel framework construction was inserted at the end of March 2021.
  • The electronic interlocking in Duisburg was commissioned at the end of May 2021 under the supervision of DB E&C. This allows capacity to be expanded and downtimes and delays to be minimized.

Based on the studies we conducted as an early train operator in preparation for the operation of California High-Speed Rail, the California High-Speed Rail Authority has adopted the business plan, including the political recommendation to launch an interim high-speed train between the cities of Merced and Bakersfield as the first building block, while the additional funding needed for the completion of phase 1 between San Francisco and Los Angeles is being determined.
