Through Lower Carinthia by train
The route for this line was developed by ÖBB-Infrastruktur together with local residents and the region. The municipality of Bleiburg and the market town of Feistritz ob Bleiburg are integrated into the high-speed line via the existing “Bleiburg Loop”. Kühnsdorf-Klopeinersee Railway Station is being built in a new location, which will also benefit tourism in the region. Thanks to the Koralm Railway, Lower Carinthia now also has access to the new Southern Line.
The final phase of construction work
The shell for the entire section is already about to be completed. In the Kühnsdorf area, the substructure work was already completed in 2013 and construction started in St. Kanzian in 2015: Here, ÖBB-Infrastruktur has built two railway bridges as well as three tunnels. A total of nine road and railway bridges are being built in Mittlern, as well as the new Mittlern stop. At the same time, the Stein and Lind tunnels are also taking shape at either end of the Drau bridge.
