Strengthen links with regional centres
Freight trains will operate on the mixed-track line, which will promote economic growth through short transport times.
Fast train connections to European capitals are an attractive prospect for both business and leisure travellers. The new line will free up capacity for more people to use the train, which will increase the access to interesting jobs and education.
Climate friendly on the move
Traffic volume in the EU is growing steadily. The Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) aims to improve connections in Europe through climate-friendly infrastructure to ensure mobility in the future. By shifting a portion of passengers and cargo to trains, it will help reduce emissions from cars and trucks, especially on the D8 highway in Czechia and A17 in Germany. High-speed lines are also a time-equivalent substitute for short-distance flight connections.
