PROBLEMS OF THE GERMAN FEDERAL RAILWAY IN CONNECTION WITH THE INTEGRATED TRANSPORT-INFRASTRUCTURE PLAN

PROBLEME DER BUNDESBAHN IM INTEGRIERTEN VERKEHRSWEGEPLAN

Whereas investments for road constructions jumped from 0.5 thousand million in 1950 to 12.1 thousand million DM in 1972, the German Federal Railway during this same period found itself having to concentrate it investments almost exclusively on maintenance. The massive transfer of petrol taxes to other transport-policy projects means that the DB is now able to implement its concepts within the framework of the national transport infrastructure programme. The 1973/1974 federal budget already makes provision for the construction of new lines. The DB is confident of reducing its cost prices through rationalization of its administration, development of its network and assets, and definition of a new strategy for part-load traffic.
