Current infrastructure restrictions

Track closure Rastatt - Baden-Baden

Current news (updated: 14.09.2017 13:00)

Due to higher staff assignment and material usage as well as ideal construction processes the Rheintalbahn reopening will be able to happen sooner than anticipated. The route was originally scheduled to reopen on 7 October 2017 but is now rescheduled to do so on 2 October 2017 (00:00).

In order to organize the startup of the line reopening together, we are offering you the following communication methods (as of 18 September 2017):

  • daily track conference
  • bilateral discussions between DB Netz and the involved railway undertakings


We have summarized the most important information concerning the Rheintalbahn closure for you in a handout.

Details about the background and the current damage repair status as well as contacts to help with planning and coordination of your transport operations can be found in there. Furthermore, the handout includes an illustration to provide an overview of all alternative routes and their specific restrictions.



For further information please contact your regional sales office of DB Netz AG. Our contact persons will be pleased at all times to deal with any queries you may have.
