A €190M contract for the construction of the Radimero section of the Tortona/Novi Ligure-Genoa railway line, has been signed in Genoa between COCIV, the EPC General Contractor on the Third Giovi Crossing, and the JV consisting of Toto Costruzioni Generali (58%) and Seli Overseas (42%). The new railway line will connect the port area of Genoa with Turin and Milan on the Corridor of the Reno-Alps.
The two Italian companies have been awarded the lot which extends for some 7.7km and consists of a single-track, twin-tube tunnel with an internal diameter of 8.6m. The two tunnels will be excavated using two 9.77m EPB TBM’s.
This project, which is expected to be delivered in 33 months, is particularly challenging and of great strategic importance since it will complete a further stretch of the maxi railway program called the Terzo Valico dei Giovi.
