Bavaria: Bahn wants to stick to the controversial Brenner variant

After the protest about the northern access to the Brenner near Rosenheim, Deutsche Bahn announced an "open-ended" review of its plans. Now these results are there.

Rosenheim (dpa / lby) - Deutsche Bahn wants to stick to the preferred route despite the trouble about the northern feeder of the Brenner near Rosenheim. "The "Limone" variant remains the selected route in the Grafing-Ostermünchen section of the Brenner-Nordzulauf railway project," the railway said on Thursday evening. This is the result of a review of the route selection, which Deutsche Bahn wanted to present in detail on Friday.

It is about new tracks between Ostermünchen in the district of Rosenheim and Grafing in the district of Ebersberg. Local residents and politicians in the Upper Bavarian region had protested against the determination of the DB. "We are appalled at the arrogance and ignorance with which the railways ignore the joint proposals from the district council, municipalities, committed citizens and agriculture for an expansion close to the existing stock," said Ebersberg District Administrator Robert Niedergesäß (CSU).

After the criticism, the railways had promised another "open-ended review". However, the review confirms “the advantages of the “Limone” route,” said the railway. "From the point of view of the experts and appraisers, all points of criticism were refuted." The overall project manager Matthias Neumaier explained: "The result of the review is clear. The assessment method used for the route selection process is correct."

This week, the government factions in the state parliament made it clear again that they prefer a route other than the train. The CSU demanded that the DB should reprioritise the planned route for the northern access to the Brenner. The Free Voters faction emphasized that it is important that such a project is accepted by the local people.

The 16-kilometer route will later serve as a feeder to the Brenner Base Tunnel. The tunnel will be built in Austria and Italy.

The new line relieves people on the existing line of noisy freight traffic, the railway said. From today's 146 freight trains on the existing route, only 28 will remain a day in the future. "Overall, the test results show that the corresponding sub-criteria in the route selection process were correctly evaluated and the assumed errors do not apply."
