The Baltic-Adriatic corridor between the Baltic Sea (Gdansk) and the Adriatic Sea (Rimini) – the rail corridor along the ancient Amber Road – is one of the most important north-south train connections in Europe. On Austrian territory, the Pottendorf Line, the Semmering Base Tunnel, the Koralm Railway, station modernisations in Bruck/Mur and Graz Central Station as well as the Karawanken Tunnel are currently being upgraded or newly constructed for this purpose.
Arsenal Race is inspecting a considerable part of this Baltic-Adriatic Corridor in Austria over a total length of 186 km as a Notified Body and is thus making a significant contribution to the success of these projects:
- Pottendorf Line: 32 km of rail infrastructure, regional stations, overhead line and ERTMS equipment
- Semmering base tunnel: 27 km of rail infrastructure and overhead line equipment
- Koralm railway: 127 km of rail infrastructure, overhead contact line systems and ERTMS equipment, 5 bridges and viaducts as well as several station upgrades and conversions (including Graz main station)
- Karawanken tunnel: 9 km rail infrastructure
