Highway A7

City Hamburg
Country Germany
Client Federal Republic of Germany
Contract type Public-Private-Partnership (PPP)
Construction period 2015-2018
Contract period 30 years

Via Solutions Nord GmbH & Co. KG, a consortium comprising HOCHTIEF Solutions subsidiary HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions GmbH, the institutional investor Dutch Infrastructure Fund, and KEMNA BAU Andreae GmbH & Co. KG, is planning, financing and upgrading some 65 kilometers of the A7 federal highway between the Hamburg-Northwest and Bordesholm intersections, and will operate and maintain a section between Hamburg and Neumünster for 30 years. The construction costs amount to around EUR 600 million.

The project involves widening the said section of the highway from six to eight lanes, and also includes the construction or refurbishment of 29 bridges. In addition, a noise protection tunnel is to be built in the section at Schelsen. A new highway maintenance depot—which will also be the headquarters of the operating company—will be constructed in the community of Nützen, at the Kaltenkirchen interchange.

The construction work, which is handled by a joint venture between HOCHTIEF Infrastructure, KEMNA BAU and KEMNA subsidiary, Tesch Straßenbau GmbH & Co. KG, will take around four years. Once completed, an approximately six-kilometer section between Neumünster and Bordesholm will be handed over to the federal state of Schleswig-Holstein. The remaining 59 kilometers will be operated and maintained by the partners until 2044.

On May 1, 2015 the operating company Via Solutions Nord Service GmbH & Co. KG commenced operating the “Hamburg-Neumünster” A7 highway. The company will operate a total of 59 kilometers of the project route between the Hamburg Northwest intersection and the Neumünster North interchange for a period of 30 years.
