Traisentalbahn receives Clusterland Award

Ecoplus awards prize „The most successful cooperation  project“ to  – Regionallogistik Anschlussbahn Traisental
 The project with the title „Regionallogistik Anschlussbahn Traisental“ has won the special price oft he ecoplus-Clusterland Award this week. The intended close-down of the railway line offering 17 kms of track between Freiland and St. Aegyd im Neuwalde would have forced the companies based in the area to relocate from rail to road and would have increased the number of truck trips in the Traisen Valley by 4.000. 
 After extensive planning and coordination , start of operations organised by the Traisen-Gölsental Regionalmanagement GmbH was on 1 April 2012. Amongst others, the project partners are Isoplus Fernwärmetechnik GmbH, Roth Technik Austria, Brunner-Stern GmbH, Lenzing AG, Nettingsdorfer Papierfabrik, Raiffeisen-Lagerhaus genossenschaft m.b.H. and the  Österreichische Bundesforste.
Since 1 April 2012 the Traisen-Gölsental region has operated the infrastructure of the former ÖBB track Freiland – St. Aegyd/Nw. via the Traisen-Gölsental Regionalenwticklungs GmbH. The line serves as feeder line for cargo traffic and restricted public transport (special trips). The track was built in 1893 and helps to avoid more than 4.000 truck trips. The aim in the next ten years is to reduce the transport volume by rail from 65.000 tons (2011) to 90.000 tons.    
 The jury reasoned on the basis that a systematic approach can help to dissolve economic regional disparities and that this project is a prime example of helping yourselves while helping others which should also encourage other regions and sectors.
 Within the framework of ecoplus Cluster Niederösterreich the Raiffeisen-Bankengruppe NÖ-Wien gives out the Clusterland Award, the Lower Austrian cooperation award,  in cooperation with the province of Lower Austria and ecoplus. It is the aim of this competition to honour and present to the public outstanding ideas and projects in the areas sustainable construction and living, plastics, metal/mechatronics, foodstuffs, logistics and (electric) mobility.
