Studies for new Munich Airport rail connection receive an EU grant

Creation date: October 16, 2013

The European Union will co-finance with €12.5 million from the TEN-T Programme a series of studies preparing the future construction of a rail section to join Munich Airport in Germany to the "Railway axis Paris-Strasbourg-Stuttgart-Wien-Bratislava" (TEN-T Priority Project 17).


The studies, which were selected for funding under the 2012 TEN-T Multi-Annual Call, include planning activities to obtain the building permit for a 20 km rail section. One part of the new infrastructure will go from Munich Airport towards the east to Erding and the second from Erding to Walpertskirchen, where it will connect to PP17.


As a result of the studies and subsequent works, there will be improved modal integration, sustainable mobility and intermodality between PP17 and Munich Airport.


The initiative is set to be completed by December 2015.
