First turn of the sod for new ÖBB cargo terminal in Vienna-Inzersdorf

ÖBB invest about EUR 300 million into planning and construction of the new cargo terminal in Vienna-Inzersdorf; Completion scheduled for 2017
With a reorganisation of their terminal structure, the Austrian railway enterprise ÖBB increase their freight capacity in and around Vienna. On August 2 they made the first turn of the sod for the new cargo terminal in Vienna Inzersdorf. The new facility will be built on a 55 hectares plot. The start of operation – scheduled for 2017 – will be followed by gradual closures of several cargo railway stations in and around Vienna – such as the Viennese freight station Wien-Nordwestbahnhof, where a new city district of apartments and offices will be established. The ÖBB invest about EUR 300 million into planning and construction. The project is co-financed by the European Commission.
As a multifunctional cargo terminal the new freight station will comprise facilities for wagon loads, combined load transport and buildings for contract logistics including required superstructure as well as transport and operational facilities. The project will be implemented in several stages. The first stage provides for the construction of the facilities for combined load transport (37,000 m² container storage area) and wagon load transport. Transhipment capacity for containers will be 145,000 units per year; with an approved option for expansion to 270,000 boxes per year.
The terminal Vienna Inzersdorf is situated at the junction of the railway line Pottendorfer Linie and the highway S1. This ensures connection to the existing high-level railway network and to the road network on all major trade lanes, which results in optimised driving times of the cargo trains. The decisive criteria for the selection of the site were spatial structure, environment and ecology, required cargo capacity, high-level rail and road connection as well as space for required terminal function.
The new operational tracks are situated next to the east track of the former railway station Inzersdorf-Metzgerwerke. They will serve as tracks for incoming and outgoing trains, shunting operations and as sidings. Also tracks for separation of trains, wagon order or wagon change will be built. The part of the facility dedicated to intermodal transport will be composed of two loading track-groups including related road and storage areas for container transhipment (train-truck and train-train), swap bodies and semitrailers. The part at the road will include loading yards with ramps. The part next to the railway will include a group of tracks. Moreover the plans include rail sidings, container storage places and several small and building constructions. A major part of the tracks will be electrified.
