Traisen Valley Railway

Fast and comfortable from the Traisen Valley to the provincial capital. This will be possible thanks to a facelift of the regional railway. The line will be electrified and the stations will be made more attractive. For the population, this will make train travel even more desirable in the future and climate-friendly.

Green mobility

The Traisen Valley Railway from St. Pölten to Hainfeld or Freiland is an important route for opening up the district of Lilienfeld. It is particularly important for schoolchildren and commuters. Rail transport through the lovely green landscape will soon be more environmentally friendly. After the electrification of the entire line, diesel-powered passenger trains will give way to modern, electric train sets. All stations along the line are awaiting an all-round renewal. A contemporary appearance and optimal customer information systems in real time are just as important as barrier-free design and the construction or expansion of Park&Ride and Bike&Ride facilities to make it easier and more comfortable to change to rail. Further, a number of railway crossings will be abandoned. This means that neuralgic points in the road network will disappear and measures to increase safety will be taken. With this bundle of actions, we are not only making a significant contribution to climate protection, but also increasing safety in road traffic as a whole.
