Approval of Arlberg Tunnel

Friday, 11 December 2010

A total of 210 million ‚ā¨ were invested into maintenance and technical upgrade of the Arlberg railway tunnel in the last six years. Since Friday the trains have been travelling on two tracks through the ten kilometre long tunnel tube between the railway stations St. Anton (Tyrol) and Langen (Vorarlberg) again.

Since 2004 the Arlberg railway tunnel has been extensively repaired at the tunnel floor and vault, a ballast-less track was installed, eight escape and emergency route connections were constructed in collaboration with Asfinag as well as lighting and a permanent water supply line for fire protection was installed.
