Baden-Württemberg: Association: S-Bahn to Singen to prevent Gäubahn capping

Stuttgart (dpa / lsw) - Could the cutting of the Gäubahn route from Lake Constance to Stuttgart Central Station still be prevented? Interest groups, mayors and Deutsche Bahn discussed this on Friday in Stuttgart. In the so-called Gäubahn "Fact Check" several alternatives were presented and played through.

Due to the construction of a tunnel as part of the Stuttgart 21 mega-project, the Gäubahn is threatened to be closed for several years. From 2025, the trains from Singen will no longer run to Stuttgart Central Station, but will end in Stuttgart-Vaihingen. Thousands of passengers in long-distance and regional transport every day would then have to switch to S-Bahn, buses and light rail for many years. There is resistance to this.

"We wanted to show that there is more than just this option," said CDU member of parliament Guido Wolf, who, as chairman of the interest group Gäu-Neckar-Bodensee-Bahn, had invited to the discussion. For him, the option of an S-Bahn connection to Singen had arisen, which he considered necessary to investigate further, he said. It must be clarified, for example, how many additional S-Bahn vehicles would be needed and whether they would be available from 2025. The feasibility of the Ministry of Transport and the railways must now be checked next, said Wolf.

The federal government's rail commissioner, Michael Theurer (FDP), also advocated a similar solution. "A direct S-Bahn connection to Horb and the diversion of long-distance trains via Tübingen and the airport to the new Stuttgart main station would be the silver bullet for travelers and residents of the Gäubahn," he explained. It is important for the federal government and DB Netz AG: "The Pfaffensteig tunnel must be implemented as quickly as possible so that the advantages of Stuttgart 21 can also be felt quickly in southern Baden-Württemberg."
