Upgrade Schaftenau–Radfeld

The new Lower Inn Valley railway in the Tyrol will be upgraded as required. The planned section between Schaftenau and Radfeld is part of the northern approach to the Brenner Base Tunnel. It will meet the highest requirements for capacity and passenger comfort.

Fast, environmentally friendly and safely through the Tyrol by train: This will also be made possible by the expansion of the Lower Inn Valley railway in the state border area Kufstein–Schaftenau. The planned new line will meet the highest standards of quality. The approach to the Brenner Base Tunnel fulfils all future requirements of a modern high-speed railway line, thanks to the generous rail capacity on offer.

Connection to the Brenner Base Tunnel

The first section of the new Lower Inn Valley railway between Kundl and Baumkirchen was opened in 2012. With its plans for the further upgrade towards Kufstein, ÖBB-Infrastruktur is improving the offer of regional and long-distance services for customers in the long term. And the Brenner Base Tunnel can ideally deploy its effectiveness in this regard. The Scandinavia-Mediterranean Corridor forms the most important north-south connection in Europe.
