NORTH-SOUTH AND EAST-WEST TRAFFIC IN THE VORARLBERG - EAST SWITZERLAND AREA

DER NORD-SUED- UND OST-WEST-VERKEHR IM RAUM VORARLBERG-OSTSCHWEIZ

THE GEOGRAPHICAL BOUNDARY OF VORARLBERG IN THE EAST AUSTRIAN FEDERAL AREA IS BALANCED BY THE PROMINENT TRANS-REGIONAL POSITIONS OF LAKE CONSTANCE AND THE RHINE BASIN. THIS FACT IS BORNE OUT BY THE CONCENTRATION OF MAIN CONNECTIONS PARTICULARLY IN THE AREA SOUTH OF LAKE CONSTANCE, TO BE FOUND THERE. HERE THE PRESSURE AREAS OF AUSTRIA, SWITZERLAND, SEVERAL AREAS OF GERMANY, FRANCE AND NORTHERN ITALY, NAMELY THOSE REGIONS THROUGH WHICH THE MAIN TRANSPORT ROUTES AND IMPORTANT ROUTES TO REGIONAL FOREIGN TRAFFIC CENTRES RUN, ARE CONNECTED IN BOTH NORTH-SOUTH AND EAST-WEST DIRECTIONS. HOWEVER UNLESS THE SPLUEGEN OPEN COUNTRY TRAIN IS CONSIDERED AS AN ALTERNATIVE MODE OF TRANSPORT, THERE IS A DANGER THAT THESE ROUTES WILL CIRCLE AROUND VORARLBERG IN THE FUTURE.
