Semmering Base Tunnel New

The Semmering Railway is part of the Austrian Südbahn and runs from Gloggnitz over the Semmering Pass to Mürzzuschlag. Journey times on the existing line are long due to steep and inopportune slopes. Initial works for the Semmering Base Tunnel were launched in 1994, but had to be stopped, since approbation by all authorities involved failed due to environmental reason. A relaunch of the "Semmering Base Tunnel Project" took place in 2005, with an interdisciplinary team of engineers assessing alternative alignments for a new environmental impact statement.
