Upgrade Linz–Selzthal

The fast and safe way from Upper Austria to Styria on the Pyhrn Line: The upgrade of the line to two tracks in various sections between Linz and Selzthal makes this possible. And many railway stations and stops are being given a whole new look.

Faster connections, more trains and an improved infrastructure: All thanks to the upgrade of the Pyhrn Line between Linz and Selzthal. ÖBB-Infrastruktur has been upgrading the line to two tracks in stages since 1993 as well as modernising railway stations and stops.

As a passenger, you can therefore enjoy shorter journey times and barrier-free access to the platforms. Freight services also benefit: The Pyhrn Line is part of the Pyhrn-Schober Corridor. This important international north-south Corridor connects Germany and the Czech Republic with Austria and Slovenia.
