"A new tunnel through Berlin" - The photo book on the construction of the new U5
The construction work for the new U5 has been documented photographically since its start in 2012. Many of the photos taken during this work have been regularly presented here on the website over the past few years and now the most beautiful of them have been compiled in a photo book published by BVG Projekt GmbH. The photo book documents the complicated large-scale project. 180 high-quality colour photographs by photographer and site manager Antonio Reetz-Graudenz offer a fascinating insight into the creation of the tunnel and the new stations. They are accompanied by short, informative texts by Dr. Stephanie Niehoff.
Today, Tuesday, October 6, 2020, the illustrated book was presented on the mezzanine level of the Rotes Rathaus underground station. The editors Ute Bonde and Jörg Seegers, managing directors of BVG Projekt GmbH, the publisher Dr. Norbert Jaron as well as the photographer Antonio Reetz-Graudenz and the author Dr. Stephanie Niehoff were present.
The illustrated book is now available in bookshops and BVG shops at a price of 20€. You can also win the book, just have a look at the next issue of our Lückenschluss newsletter.
