The European Union will support with €1.5 million from the TEN-T Programme a project to construct a rail bridge over the Drau river, just east of the southern Austrian city of Klagenfurt.
The project, which was selected for funding under the 2012 TEN-T Annual Call, involves the construction of a railway bridge crossing the Drau river in the city of Stein. The works include the construction of the bridge’s foundation (including pillars and abutments), support structure and equipment.
The project addresses the implementation of a key rail corridor and will positively contribute to modal shift towards rail in the region and beyond.
