Workshop in Hamburg, Oct. 2015
The workshop, meetings of Activity Groups and the Steering Board were organised by the Landesbetrieb Straßen, Brücken und Gewässer Hamburg (LSBG, State Agency of Roads, Bridges and Water Hamburg) and ITA COSUF. The first day was reserved for internal meetings of the ITA COSUF Steering Board and the four Activity Groups. The second day was well-filled with technical presentations, site visits to the Elbe Tunnel with Control Room and Tunnel Tube and as well the Operating Centre Hochbahn (metro and public transport operator of Hamburg).
At Traffic Control Center in Elbe tunnel, we learned more about safety management and safety equipment.
Many of us visited also the old Elbe tunnel. A over 100 year old subsea(river) tunnel with elevators for cars, pedestrians and bicycles.
