The increase of the cadence of the train and road traffic made it necessary to remove the level crossings 13 and 14 at Oberkorn.
The works consist of 4 parts.
Part 1 includes the works related to the removal of level crossing 14 as well as the construction of a substitution underpass allowing the passing under the tracks between the "rue Prince Henri" » and the "rue des Mines" by a new road connection.
In the same context, the stopping point of Oberkorn will be reconstructed and adapted to the needs of passengers with reduced mobility. It will be equipped with a pedestrian underpass accessible by stairs, elevators and ramps.
This new modern stopping point will be placed closer to the new installations of the « Parc des Sports » with which it will be directly connected. This connection will be the subject of a separate project initiated by the City of Differdange.
Part 2 is regrouping the works in order to remove level crossing 13. Particularly, a substitution road underpass, joining the "rue de la Gare" and the "rue Dalscheidt", will be constructed.
By part 3, a new pedestrian underpass will be constructed at the actual location of the level crossing 13 in order to maintain for the residents the direct passing under the railway tracks.
Part 4 includes the civil engineering works (realization of mast foundations) related to the renewal of the electric traction installations (catenaries) impacted by the works of part 1 to 3.
