An under-construction tunnel under the Rhine valley line collapsed on saturday. Sensors detected it and the line was closed before a train derailed.

The tunnel is part of the efforts to quad-track the Rhine valley line. It is build with a TBM, which runs at the shallow depth of 5 meters there, as it is close to the portal.

The line carries about 300 trains per day so being closed possibly for weeks will have a heavy impact on traffic in south Germany and towards Switzerland. Especially since the other mainline to Switzerland Stuttgart-Singen, 70 km east, is also closed for repairs.
