Cometto working on ICE – Video

The expansion of the ICE connection between Stuttgart and Ulm is a project of the century in traffic infrastructure. It is full of challenges for man and machine. The erection of the 485 m-long Filstal Bridge represents a milestone. The new Cometto MSPE self-propelled vehicles belonging to the Wiesbauer company passed this test with flying colours.

The impressive structure towers over the valley near Mühlhausen im Täle and will have two railway tracks on completion. With a height of 85 m, it will be Germany’s third highest railway bridge. The bridge is being constructed by the Max Bögl / Porr consortium. With an overall length of 485 m, it is the Deutsche Bahn AG’s largest single structure on this new ICE route, after the main railway station in Stuttgart. From 2022 onwards, high-speed trains will cross the bridge in just seven seconds at 250 km/h.
