New legal form.
Willke GmbH is now starting with the legal form GmbH & Co. KG into the new decade. This change is part of a restructuring of the group of companies and came into force on 05.11.2009.
Willke rail construction has several construction projects in its order book for the first quarter of 2010. At Osthannoversche Eisenbahnen AG, OHE for short, we are carrying out various track and switch construction works. These include the reconstruction of 1,825 m of track, 1,200 individual sleeper replacements, several turnout sleeper renewals and the reconstruction of two level crossings.
For Deutsche Bahn AG, we are rebuilding a total of ten switches at Hamburg Central Station on five weekends in March and April. This work is being carried out under the most difficult logistical conditions, as the neighbouring track can only be closed during a four-hour night-time shutdown.
In addition, the Willke company will be working in Switzerland for the first time in March. A 627 m long railway track is being renewed at Basel Bad station.
In addition, there are long-term projects in Switzerland, which will start in the second quarter of 2010 and will be completed in several stages by 2012.
After entering the Norwegian market and the associated first reconstruction of Oslo station, Willke will continue to work on projects in Norway and Denmark together with the company H.F. Wiebe from Achim.
