The world is growing together and becoming more interconnected. The Twin-City region Vienna-Bratislava, and thus the European railway network, will be connected to the Asian railway network. This gives the whole of Europe the opportunity to become a part of the transport network of the future.
Another phase in the assessment of whether a new rail cargo link between Europe and Asia is feasible was formally launched in Slovakia and Austria on November 15, 2018. The relevant ministries of both countries took in the applications necessary to allow for the environmental impact assessments.
