New railway line: Dresden to Prague
The rail connection between Dresden and Prague is to be improved to meet future requirements for increasing cargo traffic volume and shorter travel times in passenger transport. This is a declared goal between the Free State of Saxony and the Czech Republic.
At present, it takes more than two hours to travel between Dresden and Prague. With the addition of the new railway line, this time will be reduced to less than one hour by routing outside the Elbe Valley.
In addition, the capacity for cargo transport will be significantly increased, noise pollution along the existing route will be reduced and a flood-proof route will be achieved. Benefits can also be seen at the German seaports, where bottleneck issues will be improved.
In Saxony, the cross-border rail link through the Elbe Valley is an important component of TEN-V 22, and in addition to the link between Dresden and Prague, is heavily relied on for international traffic to and from the North Sea and Baltic Sea ports.
Successful international cooperation
EPLASS CDE’s Drawing Management module in the Professional Edition is used for the approval and checking processes of documents for submission of tenders, as well as for the checking and approval of the pre-planning. The functionality of EPLASS CDE is complemented using the EPLASS CDE Correspondence module as an exchange platform for correspondence between DB Netz AG and SZDC – Správa železnic, state organization (Czech Railways).
The successful international cooperation with the SZDC deserves special mention. For example, the contract documents for the project are being reviewed simultaneously by both DB Netz AG and SZDC with the involvement of a translation agency.
