This multinational railway project is wide-ranging and unites the four countries of Austria, Slovakia, Ukraine and Russia into Breitspur Planungsgesellschaft mbH (BPG). Our goal is the creation of a continuous, integrated logistics corridor between Asia and Europe. We want to reach this target by integrating the existing 1,520 mm line to the Twin-City region Vienna-Bratislava – the centre of Europe.
