Austrian intermodal node to become a reality

Creation date: July 5, 2011

A study paving the way for the construction of an intermodal node in the Vienna metropolitan area will receive over €2 million in EU co-financing from the 2010 TEN-T Annual Call. The planned intermodal terminal of Vienna Inzersdorf will allow freight to be shifted from road to rail and contribute to the realisation of Priority Project 17 (Railway axis Paris-Strasbourg-Stuttgart-Wien-Bratislava).

 

The study receiving funding will plan the development of an intermodal node for freight transport consisting of facilities for combined transport, part-load traffic and conventional full load traffic. The construction of the Vienna Inzersdorf intermodal node will contribute to the realisation of Priority Project 17 (Railway axis Paris-Strasbourg-Stuttgart-Wien-Bratislava) and serve to increase the efficiency and capacity in rail freight transport in the Vienna region and beyond. It will be constructed in several development stages, with the study starting off as one of the most important.
