DB Regio selected for Rhein-Neckar operating contract
From Saturday 13 July to Sunday 25 August only one track is available on the German part of the Betuweroute. During this period the German infrastructure manager DB Netze works with contractors on the construction of a third track between Emmerich and Oberhausen. Rail freight traffic from the Netherlands will partly be diverted.
This was reported by Dutch infrastructure manager ProRail. Alternative routes will primarily be available via the border crossing at Venlo and to a lesser extent via the border crossing at Oldenzaal. ProRail reports that more such periods will follow this year. The rail manager has included these periods in an annual calendar.
Emmerich – Oberhausen
Improving the Betuweroute is officially called “die Ausbaustrecke Emmerich – Oberhausen” in Germany. This is a large rail project in which a third track is being constructed over a length of more than 70 kilometers. A route decision is made in the Netherlands for such a project.
In Germany, the entire process is divided into twelve sub-areas. A permit is required for each individual area. This means that work is already in progress in some areas, while in others the permit process is still in full swing.
