Modernisation of the Frankenbahn railway
Upgrading of six stations on regional railway line

The Frankenbahn railway connection between Stuttgart and Würzburg in southern Germany is to be improved to meet the current requirements of public transport. Six train stations on the 180-kilometre double-track route are to be modernised – with Inros Lackner, as General Planner, responsible for this aspect of the work.

The station platforms will be raised and lengthened, ensuring barrier-free access. Station equipment and facilities will be renewed, and a navigation system for the blind will be integrated. Two new stations will be built in new locations, each with a pedestrian underpass. The planning and design work started in summer 2020, and completion is scheduled for early 2024.
