The project i2030 is aiming to provide an improved railway infrastructure for the greater Berlin area. As part of this, AFRY was assigned to plan the connection of the Havelland region to Berlin.

For improving the Havelland region’s link to Berlin and provide sustainable mobility in the German capital area, an attractive range of train connections is essential. This requires the expansion of the railway line between Berlin Spandau and Nauen.

For a line of approximately 23 km, the expansion of the current two regional/long-distance rail tracks to four tracks, and the extension of the S-Bahn via Spandau station to Falkensee or Finkenkrug, are being analyzed by AFRY experts, who will also evaluate the construction of new stopping points in Berlin and the expansion of existing stopping points. In addition, the feasibility of an S-Bahn tunnel in the section from Stresow to Klosterbuschweg is being examined in order to generate additional capacity at Spandau station for regional and long-distance traffic.

"We are delighted to be part of this important project, which will create more climate-friendly mobility for around 3.5 million people in Berlin. AFRY has many years of experience with rail expansion projects of this kind, which we will bring to this project," says Business Unit Manager Michael Backes.
