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.
Your benefits from the Upgrade of Linz–Selzthal
- Shorter journey times
- Better connections in Upper Austria and Styria
- More capacity for passenger and cargo services
- Accessible and customer-friendly railway stations and stops
- Greater safety from the removal of railway crossings
Since the 1990s, more than half of the almost 100 kilometre-long line has been upgraded to two tracks. This allows it to handle regional and supra-regional transit traffic. Seven modernised and accessible railway stations and stops have entered into operation so far.
