DB to spend €28bn on infrastructure in 2015-19

GERMAN Rail (DB) board member for infrastructure and services Dr Volker Kefer has unveiled details of plans to spend a minimum of €28bn over the next four years on maintenance and investment in Germany's mainline rail network.

Under a financing agreement concluded last month, the federal government will contribute €20bn through the so-called Performance and Financing Agreement 2 (LuFV2) which will come from the federal budget and DB's dividend payments to the federal government.

DB will provide the remaining €8bn (equivalent to €1.6bn per year) from its own resources.

LuFV2 therefore provides a 22% increase in funding compared with LuFV1, which covered the period 2009-14.

"The increase in funding is essential to ensure high performance and future-proof our rail infrastructure," Kefer says. "This is the largest modernisation programme in the network's history. Such a large volume of work needs to be well-planned and we have been preparing for this since 2012."

Key projects for 2015 include:

[*]Major renewals on the Berlin S-Bahn North-South Line between January and May
[*]Track renewals on the Hannover – Göttingen high-speed line, with long-distance services diverted via the conventional line during May
[*]Track renewals on 44km of the Cologne – Frankfurt high-speed line, requiring four weekend closures between mid-April and mid-May
[*]Renewal of 22km of track on the Cologne – Aachen line, including the remodelling of Langerwehe station and 35km of renewals between Hennef and Au on the Cologne – Siegen line
[*]Substructure renewals on a 10km stretch of the Nuremberg – Ansbach line between Rosstal and Wicklesgreuth, and
[*]Upgrading of the Ingolstadt – Munich line for 200km/h operation.

We krijgen dus in mei weekeinden waar Keulen-Frankfurt en Hannover-Göttingen dicht zijn? Dat worden leuke dienstregelingen...

Wellicht het einde voor de Duitse armseinen?

Er verdwijnen er wel steeds meer maar voordat die allemaal zijn opgeruimd ben je nog wel wat jaren verder lijkt mij.
