Latest highlights in Austria
The Amber Road put on rail
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

ABS 48 – Electrification and expansion tilting system Geltendorf – Lindau – border Germany/Austria
The expanded railway line (ABS) 48 Electrification Geltendorf – Lindau – border Germany/Austria of DB NETZ AG and DB ENERGIE GmbH represents a significant gap closure in international rail traffic between Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Scheduled for December 2021, Munich and Zurich can be reached in less than three and a half hours. Around € 500 million were invested in the 155 km section, on which the EuroCityExpress Munich – Zurich will run electrically and in tilting mode with Swiss “Astoro” trains (RABE 503/ETR 610) as well as local traffic which will also run electrically.
The new barrier-free station Lindau-Reutin was built within the scope of the adjacent project “Knoten Lindau” as part of the so-called two-station solution in Lindau. It improves the connection in the border triangle, increases capacity in travel operations and supports urban development of Lindau.
With more than 30 projects along the line, Arsenal Race has contributed to a safe, borderless railway system as Notified Body and CSM Assessment Body:
- Certification of overhead contact line as well as upgraded and renewed infrastructure along the expanded railway line 48
- New station at junction Lindau-Reutin
- Several railway bridges along the line
- Track and switch renewals
- Adjustment of the track plan
We are also supporting with pleasure local project managers as well as the Federal Railway Authority as competent, impartial partner in matters of certification and CSM assessment.
