Two Viennese termini (Südbahnhof and Ostbahnhof railway stations) are being replaced by a modern through station with 5 platforms. In the future local trains and long-distance trains heading to or coming from the south, west and north will stop there.
This project also includes the reconstruction of the railway yard areas of Matzleinsdorf (central rolling stock repair area), Laxenburg (train service and repair area) and East (car loading area, shunting yards) as well as the reconstruction of the Südtiroler Platz interchange and the construction of the new traffic station located underneath the tracks including shopping mall and car parks. Through the closure of the termini premium building land becomes available where office, industrial and residential buildings are to be erected and a large park is to be installed. Thus working places for 20,000 persons and 5,500 new apartments will be provided.
