Within the Isarco construction site, the route of the existing Brenner railway line has been shifted by relocating the west track, on which trains will travel in direction of the Brenner pass. These works were necessary in order to proceed with the excavation of the tunnels (main and interconnecting tunnels), which will be located on the route of the existing Brenner railway line.
The existing line was shifted (for approx. 900 metres) with as little effect as possible on the operation of the current line.
At 4.51 p.m. on Sunday January,10th the first train ran on the new track between Fortezza and Le Cave.
In February, the south track will be moved in direction of Fortezza.
