Mattig Valley Railway

Entering a new railway era step by step. This is ensured by an upgrade of the Mattig Valley  Railway. The extension and electrification of the line and various station improvements will help the climate and make rail travel even more attractive.

Environmental protection and the joy of rail travel go hand in hand

The Mattig Valley Railway is being modernised step by step in several phases. The line between Braunau and Steindorf bei Straßwalchen has been extended to Neumarkt am Wallersee and has been given a modern terminal station. In addition, new electronic signal boxes, various station alterations and the modernisation or abandonment of railway crossings will bring a significant upgrade for the line and thus for you as a passenger. Not only from an ecological point of view, the electrification of the entire line from Neumarkt am Wallersee to Braunau is the highlight of the modernisation initiative. It makes a significant contribution to climate protection and the decarbonisation strategy of the federal government.
