Liveable environment

When you travel by train, you save resources. Our railway lines enable
very space-efficient traffic. In the course of railway expansion projects we
create ecological compensation areas.

Noise protection

Operation of the railways causes noise. Investments in sound insulation therefore mean quality of life for our residents. We pay particular attention to information about construction and maintenance activities.
