Subsurface investigations

In connection with the design of the Dresden–Prague new-build line, engineers must investigate the ground conditions in Heidenau, where the new line will link to the existing rail network.
The first explorations will involve core drilling to gain further knowledge of subsoil conditions. Samples of the soil and bedrock will be taken for geotechnical analysis. The boreholes will be professionally sealed again after completion of the work. Some of the boreholes will be converted into groundwater measurement stations. The groundwater measurements will be used to help plan the line and will also be passed on to the local authorities for documentation purposes.
