Construction of Lilongwe Western Bypass — Malawi

The Government of Malawi has received a loan from the African Development Bank (AfDB) towards the cost of the Multi-National Nacala Road Corridor, proceeds of which shall partly be used to finance the construction of the Lilongwe West By-Pass (13 Km).

The construction of the 13 km long Lilongwe West Bypass Road will contribute in achieving the Government’s programme of developing the road sector in the country by raising the standards of the national road network and connecting Malawi with neighbouring countries.

Furthermore, the construction of the Bypass will divert through traffic from the Central Business District (CBD) of Lilongwe and therefore reduce travel time, vehicle operation costs and other exogenous costs for road users. Transportation of people and goods will also become more efficient.

Programme Eau et Assainissement dans des municipalités de taille moyenne en Serbie – Programme III – Eaux usées — Serbie

Dans de nombreuses municipalités serbes les eaux usées des ménages, des petites et moyennes entreprises ainsi que les eaux usées industrielles sont souvent déchargées sans traitement approprié dans les eaux réceptrices affectant ainsi la santé publique et les conditions de vie. Afin d’améliorer cette situation, le Gouvernement de Serbie a lancé un programme d’investissement infrastructurel ambitieux visant une alimentation en eau potable et un traitement des eaux usées durables. Le financement est assuré par un prêt de la KfW. Des fonds de l’Union européenne et une contribution de la République de Serbie. Le « Programme III » se concentre sur l’amélioration de la qualité des eaux réceptrices et conditions de vie des habitants de villes de taille moyenne en Serbie à travers la réhabilitation d’installations de gestion et de traitement des eaux usées existantes ainsi que la construction de nouvelles installations. Les municipalités participantes sont Kruševac, Užice et Vranje. Elles sont toutes situées au sud de Belgrade. Les coûts de ces investissements ont été évalués à environ 55 millions d’euros.

Les mesures d’investissement comprennent la Composante 1 « réseaux d’assainissement » et Composante 2 « stations d’épuration » ainsi que les prestations suivantes :

  • Réhabilitation de sections du réseau d’assainissement existant (L = 14 km) avec deux stations de pompage
  • Extension de nouvelles sections du réseau d’assainissement et construction de nouveaux collecteurs vers les STEP (L = 70 km) y compris six (6) nouvelles stations de pompage
  • Réhabilitation des réseaux de drainage des eaux pluviales à Kruševac, Vranje, and Užice (réhabilitation des conduites d’eaux pluviales, séparation des conduites d’eaux pluviales et eaux usées, construction de bassins déversoirs et d’épuration

Extension du système d’alimentation en eau et d’assainissement de Sivas — Turquie

Description du projet:
Le réseau de distribution d’eau de la capitale provinciale turque Sivas a montré des besoins urgents de réhabilitation et d’extension. Des inondations fréquentes des rues se sont produites par manque d’un système de séparation entre les déchets et les eaux pluviales. Les eaux usées ont été évacuées dans la rivière sans aucun traitement. La Municipalité de Sivas a décidé de lancer un ambitieux programme d’investissement visant à assurer l’approvisionnement en eau potable et l’élimination des eaux usées durables.

Le projet est divisé en trois lots :
Lot 1 : mesures d’amélioration du système d’alimentation en eau potable, comprenant la préparation de la nouvelle configuration du réseau, la définition des zones d’approvisionnement, l’installation des accessoires respectives (compteurs à eau etc.), la mise en service d’un programme de détection des fuites et de réparation
Lot 2 : réhabilitation des systèmes d’assainissement et de canalisation des eaux de pluie
Lot 3 : construction d’un transporteur principal à la station de traitement des eaux usées (projet clé-en-mains incluant études, travaux du génie civil, fourniture et installation de l’équipement, marche d’essai, exploitation pendant 5 années)

Feasibility Study for a Trolley Bus in the Überseestadt Bremen — Germany

The Überseestadt is currently the biggest urban development area in Bremen – from the seaport to the new residential area and service district at the Weser. The goal was to provide a high quality public transport connection, taking into consideration the economic viability of the project. Therefore, the possibility of implementing trolley bus operation at the bus line 20 was analyzed.

In order to provide a high-quality and emission-free solution, the possibility of converting the bus line 20 into an electrically operated line was analyzed including transport and economic aspects in order to verify the technical feasibility of the transition.

However, the conversion from diesel based operation into a completely electrical solution requires bigger investment in infrastructure and in vehicles. In order to avoid high costs for the adaption of the infrastructure in the fields of road underpasses and intersections, also a hybrid alternative “trolley bus+” with efficient batteries for bridging the section without catenary, so that a completely electrical operation without the use of diesel engines would be possible was analyzed.

The study came to the result, that with a partly electrical solution (“trolley bus+” with efficient batteries) the investment costs could be reduced by 25 %. Cost-effective operation under the current cost structures would be possible if the buses departed at least in 15 minutes intervals considering increasing urbanization.

Telematic Controlled Truck Parking in Montabaur — Germany

In order to improve the parking area situation at rest stops and service stations, and off-motorway service areas, pre-gate parkingor slot-management improvement for trucks was developed using telematics-controlled truck parking (truck parking in columns). By the computerized-controlled arranging of the trucks according to their departure times, the existing area was optimally used with the result that 70 – 100 % more parking space was achieved. The fully automatic operation of the system was successfully tested and approved at the Montabaur service station and rest stop by the Frauenhofer Institute in summer 2013.

Adaption of 5 tram stations for full accessibility for handicapped persons — Germany

The Frankfurt Public Utilities Transport Company, pursuing the key objective “Mobility for everyone”, has considered in a special manner the handicapped accessibility for the expansion planning of the tram stations in order to enable the autonomous use of the facilities for physically and visually handicapped persons.

Both available platforms have a height of only 0,12 m above rail. Therefore, an access to the trams at the same level wouldn’t be possible. Also, no tactile guidance equipment for visually handicapped people was available. Furthermore, the available platform equipment doesn’t meet the present VGF (Frankfurt’s transport company and transport operator) standards, because e.g. there are no information items available in the waiting room.

In order to improve the attractiveness of the tram station „Dieselstrasse“ (amongst others) and to enable full accessibility it is necessary to lift the platforms and to equip them with fully accessible ramps as well as with a tactile guidance system.

Technical Details:

Length of platform L = 31,00 m (opposite)

Width of platform: B = 2,75 m.

Upper edge of platform: 0,24 m above rails.

The approved documents were prepared with detailed planning and design documents. The required services were defined in the service specifications and conditioned for the construction tendering of VGF.
