Construction of the present solve problems of the future.(Deutsche Bahn)

More construction sites – fewer delays last year • Currently 94 percent of Berlin’s railway stations without steps • Web forms solid
The German track is active this year in Berlin / Brandenburg to about 6,400 sites and is investing a total of 522 million euros. Even if the passenger is at the center of the site planning and can provide comprehensive and informing means building usually detours and longer travel times in the replacement buses.

Alexander Kaczmarek, Corporate Representative of Deutsche Bahn for Berlin, says:

“If we do not build today is leaving tomorrow no train. We must therefore importune this year with eleven major construction projects our passengers. One of them is the track renewal on the east ring, which begins on April 8. Although building is temporary closures, but in the end, more capacity, more reliability and punctuality. Good examples are the new Ostkreuz or Karower cross.” 

Although the number of construction sites from 5795 in 2017 rose to 6,253 last year, the punctuality improved regional transport from 94.6 to 95 percent. Well-trained staff are needed for this result. So learn aspiring dispatcher in the operating field Schoeneweide with original signal boxes on a model railroad layout the safe and punctual train operations during construction or in case of failure. From next year are also increasingly virtual reality learning scenarios used.

An ongoing field of activity is the barrier-free access to the stations. Since 2009, the proportion of the Berlin stations whose platforms can be gradually reached without, been increased from 77 to 94 percent. This also means more maintenance and service. The systems are remotely monitored in case of failure to respond quickly. A mid single-digit million amount is spent annually for a total of 230 elevators and 260 escalators.
