Austrian Rail Development to Cut Time From Budapest to Vienna
The Austrian government plans to invest more than EUR 21 billion in railway development projects between 2024 and 2029, which would connect Budapest with Vienna's international airport by train and decrease travel time between the capitals significantly, according to G7.hu.
The Austrian Climate Protection and Mobility Ministry developed the relevant plans with the railway company ÖBB.
The aim is to increase the number of passengers and make railway transport attractive for shipping companies. Apart from other lines (Brenner tunnel, Graz-Klagenfurt, etc.), the ambitious project includes some Hungarian relevance.
Travel time between Budapest and Vienna would decrease by 20 minutes. Furthermore, the Austrians will build a new railway line to the international airport. As a result, the airport will become easily reachable even from Budapest and Bratislava.
