According to a report by the news portal “The Pioneer”, Deutsche Bahn could receive up to seven billion euros more from the federal government in 2023 due to the renovation backlog. The money is intended for the maintenance and rehabilitation of the network.
According to a media report, Deutsche Bahn could receive more money from the federal government than previously planned because of the renovation backlog in the rail network. The Ministry of Finance is planning to provide an additional five to seven billion euros this year, the news portal “The Pioneer” learned from government circles. The money is therefore intended for the maintenance and rehabilitation of the network. The total financing requirement for the renovation of the network is now estimated at 86 billion euros.
The demand from the railways is also great because the construction costs have risen sharply in recent years. The group is already building at a record level – which contributed to numerous train delays last year. Starting next year, the most important rail corridors in the country are to be completely renovated.
