Presented in Germany a plan to create a network primary rail for passengers and freight with high performance

Hosseus (ZDS): in the creation of high-speed corridors give the highest priority to German seaports on the Sea of the North and on the Baltic Sea

In Germany the rail connections for passengers and freight more trafficked of the nation, which currently make up about 10% of the entire network and on which 25% of all trains, will be enhanced by creating a real network of high performance and high capacity rails. In addition, the length of this widely used network will be carried by the current 3,500 kilometers to about 9,000 kilometers by the end of this decade.

This was announced yesterday by the German federal government and the group Deutsche Bahn (DB) railway. "The ever-increasing growth of traffic on an already limited infrastructure and further reduced by construction work - highlighted the administrator DB delegate, Richard Lutz - determines traffic jams and delays with a huge impact on all customers in the transport sector passengers and that of the transport of goods. The current quality operational clearly does not meet our requirements. You don't think so it can be content to go on like this. A solution sustainable lies in the infrastructure, given that 80% of the quality of the rail system is decided by the rail network. The Federal government and DB are therefore transforming the network more used in a high-performance network that will become the backbone of passenger and freight transport by rail.'

According to forecasts, the complete renovation of the first railway corridor that is part of this primary network will be started in 2024.

The programme presented by the government and the railway company is the Association of German Ports liked very much: «the ports German seafarers - highlighted the Director General of the Zentralverbandes der deutschen Seehafenbetriebe (ZDS), Daniel Hosseus - are railway ports. This ensures transport of goods fast and environmentally friendly. Deutsche Bahn's analysis shows that these benefits are seriously at risk. The DB itself ranking as the already completed connections with ports German seafarers such as Wilhelmshaven, Bremerhaven, Hamburg, Kiel and Lübeck will be overly saturated from 2030. In creation of high-speed corridors - concluded Hosseus - we ask the federal government and Deutsche Bahn to give the top priority to German seaports on the Sea of North and on the Baltic Sea'.
