Deutsche Bahn is modernizing its rail network in the north of Düsseldorf. Eight kilometers of tracks are to be replaced. Travelers now have to prepare for cancellations, additional transfers and waiting times for three weeks.
In the three weeks of construction, around eight kilometers of tracks between Düsseldorf main station and the S-Bahn station Derendorf would be renewed, the railway said. 7,000 tons of gravel and 10,800 sleepers are to be replaced. The route had to be partially closed for this.
There are restrictions on the lines RE2 (Osnabrück-Düsseldorf), RE3 (Hamm-Düsseldorf), RE6 (Minden-Cologne), RE11 (Kassel-Düsseldorf), RE19 (Düsseldorf-Arnheim) and on the S-Bahn line S1 (Solingen- Dortmund). The railway advised to use the online connection information. All alternative connections are already incorporated there.
