New Project to Improve Danube Shipping Conditions

The EU’s TEN-T Programme will co-finance with almost €4 million a study preparing the design and planning of a federal waterway on the Danube in south-eastern Germany.  

The project aims to improve the shipping conditions on Danube and preventing floods in the region.

Insufficient draught depth is currently limiting the navigation capacity on Danube between the Bavarian cities of Straubing and Vilshofen, some 150 km away from Munich. This study will lay out the works to improve the waterway, in particular the necessary preconditions to obtain the construction permissions and budget approvals.

The study is part of a larger project aiming to improve the important waterway axis Rhine/Meuse-Main-Danube with the objective to improve shipping conditions on the entire waterway.

The project was selected for EU funding by with the assistance of external experts under the TEN-T Multiannual Call 2013, priority projects. Its implementation will be monitored by INEA, the European Commission’s Innovation and Networks Executive Agency.

The project is to be completed by the end of 2015.
