Southern runway and Lindau traffic junction

Southern runway and Lindau traffic junction

Traditionally, Bayerische Kabelwerke is a certified partner of the German railroads and specialized railroad construction companies. Signalling cables, fibre optic cables and power cables that have been specially developed and approved in accordance with railroad regulations, can be quickly and easily called up via framework agreements. This was also the case with the Deutsche Bahn’s southern railroad project. The oldest railroad line in Württemberg was opened in 1850 and connects the cities of Ulm, Ravensburg and Biberach with Friedrichshafen at  Lake Constance. At the beginning of the 20th century, the line was upgraded to a double-track system and since 2018 it has been continuously electrified.

Around 4,000 masts and 250 kilometres of overhead line are being laid. The construction work involves 35 road overpasses as well as 38 level crossings; three road bridges and two pedestrian and bicycle path connections are being newly built. After the completion of the construction work, rail passengers will be able to travel from Lake Constance to Stuttgart without changing trains and the speed will be increased step by step to 160 km/hour.

In addition, the single-track railway around Lake Constance, which will mainly run along the northern shore of Lake Constance, will connect the traffic to the international passenger and freight traffic on the Austrian and Swiss sides. The electrification of the Friedrichshafen – Lindau line as well as the modernization of the Lindau rail junction, which has been underway since 2016, complement the Southern Railway project. To this end, the Lindau-Reutin station on the mainland will be expanded into a traffic hub for regional and long-distance traffic in order to avoid the time-consuming locomotive changes at the Lindau terminus station on the island of Lake Constance. Lindau’s main station is also being renovated with an electronic interlocking system replacing six old signal boxes.

Delivery or quality problems are not an issue for Bayka as an experienced and well-established (development) partner of the rail industry. Between mid-2018 and mid-2020 alone, Bayka contributed the signal cables and multisystem cables for the entire project. The local plant engineering department was supplied with Baykaplus accessories such as connecting sleeves and cable lugs.
