Upgrade St. Margrethen–Lauterach

Quickly and easily every 30 minutes by train from Vorarlberg to neighbouring Switzerland: From 2020, the line upgrade between Lauterach and St. Margrethen will herald a new era in cross-border regional services.

Do you commute from Vorarlberg to St. Gallen canton for work? In future, you will reach your destination faster and in greater safety: The upgrade of the St. Margrethen-Lauterach Line will create an ideal connection between Switzerland and Austria. Local residents and travellers will profit from new, modern stops, better flood defences and less railway noise.

Fast cross-border connections

Trains plying between St. Margrethen and Lustenau have already been using the new bridge over the Rhine since March 2013. Work to upgrade Lustenau railway station will continue until the end of 2017. The market town will therefore shortly also have a modern and efficient mobility hub.

Your benefits from the upgrade of St. Margrethen–Lauterach

    • Shorter local and long-distance journey times
    • Customer-friendly railway stations and stops
    • More protection against flooding
    • Improved noise protection for local residents
