Focus on protecting the territory.

 

After some complete suspension periods, Rail Cargo Group’s Rolling Road (ROLA) service between Wörgl in Austria and Trento in Northern Italy is getting back on tracks with six weekly roundtrips. Travelling through the Trans-Alpine Brenner Pass, the service will keep contributing to cargo’s modal shift from road to rail in the vulnerable Tyrol area.


The service is not new. RCG used the Wörgl-Trento route in the past; however, due to Covid-19 restrictions, the route’s services got reduced and even stopped for specific periods. The latest ban occurred between 4 December 2020 and 17 January 2021. Following this date, ROLA services have revived and seen a growing demand. That is why RCG doubles the number of weekly roundtrips from three to six from 6 April onwards.

 

Focus on protecting the territory


According to RCG, the extended service will impact the life quality of Tyrol residents as little as possible. All ROLA wagons are running with quiet brakes to protect the area’s fragile balance and abide by the specific corridor’s long-term transport rules.

 

Specifically, from 2024 onwards, the Kufstein-Brenner railway line passing through Tyrol will transform to one of Europe’s ‘Quieter Routes’. This means that every passing train from the territory must be operating with silent brake pads to reduce noise effects. The specific development practically means that there will be a noisy wagons ban from the area that will equal a halving of noise levels in freight transport. Read more
