The work mainly consisted of replacing a switch complex consisting of twelve switches 1:9 and 160 m ballasted track. Various track connections were also replaced, including ballasted track (around 130 m) and concrete track (around 50 m).
Within the renewal area, the bottom and top layers of ballast were renewed, the third rail was replaced and Strail was used for the current concrete crossing. Furthermore, alignment maintenance will be performed on eight stabling tracks and the platforms in between.
