A11 Karawanken tunnel entrance area

Arrive safely together

Between 1987 and 1991, the single-tube Karawanken tunnel between Austrian and Slovenian borders was constructed as part of the A11 Karawanken motorway. The new construction of a second tube also requires the construction of a second lane in the tunnel entrance area in Carinthia. A clear case for the bridge calculations of Thomas Lorenz and his team.

The foreland area is completed, the second tunnel under construction. Part of the entire project was a 344 metres long prefabricated reinforced concrete foreland bridge, a 140 metres long anchored retaining wall as well as a 105 metres long earthworks area. In order to better evaluate the construction methods required as well as better dimensions, the entire foreland area was modeled in 3D including the landscape.
