Railway reconstruction - restriction on main railway route between Bad Schandau and Dresden

Railway reconstruction - restriction on main railway route between Bad Schandau and Dresden Dear customers, From November 7th 2016 1:30 am till November 14th 2016 4 am there will take place a lock-out on main railway route between Bad Schandau and Dresden of infrastructure operator DB Netze with complete interruption of all railway operation in this section. As this is a main and the only capacitive railway border crossing on route between Czech railway stations and north-European seaports, the lock-out brings important impact and restrictions in railway operation.

METRANS, a. s. discussed and agreed some alternative variations via other railway border crossings CZ/DE, but limited capacity of these routes doesn’t allow complete rerouting and substituting of all METRANS trains, in number of trains, their weight and length. METRANS, a. s. must count just with 75% of originally planned train capacity in this time period and with extension of train transit time to/from north-European seaports and Rhine area (METRANS services Hamburg, Bremerhaven, Rotterdam, Duisburg).
 
We would like to ask our customer to take the above mentioned restriction of operation on railway infrastructure into account and to book transports timely in advance; the bookings will be placed on trains in sequence as the orders come and until the limited capacity is filled. We would also recommend considering of postponing of the transports as we are afraid of overfilling of alternative routes also with trains of other operators causing congestions, extensive delays and late arrivals what we cannot take responsibility for.
 
We would like to apologise for complications due to necessary construction works on railway infrastructure.
 
With best regards,
 
METRANS Praha a. s.
 
 
 
 
Best regards
