The intermodal terminal Wörgl is part of the TEN-T Priority Project 1 (rail axis Berlin–Verona/Milan–Bologna–Naples–Messina–Palermo) in the section Kufstein–Innsbruck. The project comprises the construction of modal interchange station between road and rail via the construction of a new rail main line (including loading siding) in the area of the municipality of Kundl.
The project reduces environmental impacts of traffic by relieving road transport particularly traffic from heavy goods vehicles and improving the balance between the transport modes in favour of the more environmental friendly ones.
Apart from the reduction of CO2 emissions from freight transport, the project will considerably contribute to the elimination of the existing freight capacity bottleneck on the Brenner axis, thereby increasing the overall capacity on the TEN-T Priority Project 1. This will also ensure a more efficient handling of the current freight traffic flows and those to be expected in the future on the railway line.
In order to achieve these goals, the following activities are included in the project:
- construction of truck parking areas including infrastructure access facilities
- construction of a new railway main line including loading side line
- trackside development of the terminal Wörgl to create additional loading capacities
State of progress on 31 December 2011:
The construction of the truck parking areas is progressing and only slightly behind schedule. Due to a particularly harsh winter with unusually high snow levels the construction of the main railway line and the trackside development have been delayed. The delay should however be partially made up during the remainder of the implementation period.
