Commissioner Hahn visits Danube Strategy Projects in Austria

28/06/2012

On 27 June afternoon Commissioner Johannes Hahn continued his Danube Tour by visiting projects supported by the Danube Strategy in Austria. He visited first the Vienna Central Station together with Mr Michael Häupl, Mayor and Governor of Vienna and Mr Doris Bures, Austrian Federal Minister for Transport, Innovation and Technology. The completion of the New Vienna Central station has an impact on international traveling times and therefore connects the Danube Region better, both in terms of passenger and freight transport. The second project 'Integrated River Engineering Project on the Danube East of Vienna' helps to improve navigability in this area while protecting a Natural Park.
