In 2023, more than three billion euros will be invested in the infrastructure of the Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB). Among the projects to be implemented this year are the expansion and modernization of railway lines and stations, as well as the construction of additional photovoltaic power plants for cleaner energy production. It is reported by Railway Supply magazine with reference to Kurier Kolejowy.


“Investing in railways is an investment in our future,” said Austrian climate minister Leonora Gewessler. “With the ongoing investment program in rail infrastructure, we are creating an attractive alternative to the car and protecting the climate.”

In 2023, the country’s railway infrastructure will be consistently expanded. The ÖBB construction program worth 19 billion euros until 2028 is not only of great importance in terms of climate protection, but also has a stabilizing and stimulating effect on the national economy during many crises. With significant line extensions as well as many small and large upgrades, ÖBB provides an increasingly attractive public transport offer.
